Logan set to adapt ‘Jersey Boys’ tuner

GK Films' King and Headington will produce

John Logan has been tapped to adapt the musical “Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons,” with GK Films’ Graham King and Tim Headington producing.

King and Headington, who snagged feature rights to “Jersey Boys” in October 2010, plan to use much of the same music and lyrics in the stage play including such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll” and “Oh What a Night.” Valli and Bob Gaudio are exec producing.

“Frankie, Bob, Marshall, Rick, Amy, Tim and I are very excited about making this award-winning musical,” King said. “As a group, we collectively decided to go to John to adapt this incredible story.”

It’s anticipated that the project will be produced in partnership with Columbia Pictures, with Col handling worldwide distribution of the project except for some international territories that GK may potentially sell.

The Four Seasons — Valli, Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi — sold 175 million records worldwide before they were 30. The stage show has grossed more than $1 billion since opening on Broadway in 2005 and won four Tonys.

Logan wrote “Hugo,” which received a Writers Guild of America nomination for adapted screenplay last week; King and Headington were producers. He also penned the adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus” and, along with Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, wrote the next James Bond film “Skyfall.”
