The film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical 'Jersey Boys' has long been rumored to be dead without any official confirmation. Jon Favreau was originally attached to direct, but the project was soon stuck in turnaround and dropped to the bottom of Warner Bros.' priority list. Now, a new report suggests that it might be coming back to life with the help of Clint Eastwood.
It was only a few months ago that a 'Jersey Boys' movie based on the hit Broadway musical was in the works through Warner Bros. with Jon Favreau attached to direct. They even set up a website giving fans a chance to audition for a singing role in the film. Now it looks like the project won't even be ready for its original January 2013 production start. In fact, it might not even happen at all.
Actor, writer and director Jon Favreau has found his next directorial project: 'Jersey Boys.' Don't worry, it's not about those Jersey boys -- the ones that hang out at a particular Shore. This one is based on the Broadway smash 'Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.'
