Jon Favreau In Talks To Direct the ‘Jersey Boys’ Musical

Jersey Boys

Jon Favreau has gone from writer to actor to big time Hollywood director in a matter of years, a career that anyone wanting to make it in Hollywood would love to have. Now the former ‘Swinger’ and ‘Iron Man’ director is eyeing a new type of movie — a musical.

Collider has the news of Jon Favreau is officially in talks to direct ‘Jersey Boys,’ the extremely popular musical about the ups and downs of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, who had huge hits in the 60′s with songs like ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ (they do, only more) and ‘Sherry.’ This was rumored before, but now it’s looking like it’s going to happen.

Favreau is still developing ‘Magic Kingdom’ for Disney but no one knows what’s going with that project. We haven’t heard anything on it in quite a while, so perhaps ‘Jersey Boys’ will the movie Favreau decides to do next before really diving in to the big Disney movie.

John Logan, who wrote Martin Scorsese‘s ‘Hugo,’ will be penning the script. GK Films apparently wants this to be a high priority for the studio, so expect official announcements soon. If Favreau does take the gig, it’ll only be a matter of time before he casts Vince Vaughn, who may not have the singing down pat, but can certainly pull off the drinking that comes with being a star.
