In 2010, GK Films acquired the rights to produce a film version of the musical, with Brickman and Elice to write the script for the film. By August 2012, Jon Favreau was engaged to direct and casting had begun. In November 2012 Variety reported that Warner Bros. had dropped the film plans, however, in May 2013, an interview with Four Seasons lead singer Frankie Valli indicated the film was still being produced and that Valli would be contributing to the casting of his character.
