Reportedly, Walken will play the role of Angelo “Gyp” DeCarlo, the Jersey mobster. The film is scripted by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice and production begins mid-September in LA. As per the sources, Graham King and Rob Lorenz are producing the film. 
It may be recalled that the Tony-winning stage musical has grossed more than $1 billion for all its incarnations. Reports suggest that instead of going for major stars to play the young singers; Eastwood, might select them from the various casts taking the stage nightly. Walken will be the first of several stars who’ll add some name recognition to the production.

Walken, is already on a high after winning accolades for Seven Psychopaths, directed by Martin McDonagh.
