Sucsy To Helm Beach Boys Musical

“The Vow” director Michael Sucsy is in negotiations to helm an untitled musical set to the music of The Beach Boys for Fox 2000 reports Variety.

Much like the way “Mamma Mia” used ABBA and “Across the Universe” used The Beatles to tell an original story, this film will feature a fictional story and characters who will no doubt break out into musical numbers like “Surfin’ Safari,” “Good Vibration,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Kokomo,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Surfin’ USA” and “California Girls”.

Susannah Grant (“Erin Brockovich”) is penning the script while Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (“Hairspray,” “Chicago”) and John Stamos will produce.

The project is not to be confused with “The Drummer”, the indie biopic starring Aaron Eckhart as Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson which is set up at Unclaimed Freight Productions.
