Christopher Walken cast in ‘Jersey Boys’

1844577b Deadline is reporting that Christopher Walken has been cast as mobster Angelo ‘Gyp’ DeCarlo in Clint Eastwood‘s big screen version of the Broadway musical Jersey Boys.

In the Tony award-winning show, the story centers on the young singers – who go on to form 1960s group The Four Seasons – as they try to make it in music while avoiding a life of organized crime. The film, scripted by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, will be produced by Graham King and Rob Lorenz and executive produced by core Four Seasons members Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio.

Production begins mid-September in Los Angeles.
