Jersey Boys, the upcoming film adaptation based on the very successful Broadway play, may have a new director. Though Jon Favreau was originally attached, he departed when the project was put into turnaround. Now, we’re hearing that the man who will be filling in for him may very well be Mr. Clint Eastwood.

Eastwood has actually been trying to get his own musical going, A Star Is Born. Things were going well too until Beyonce, who was going to lead the project, exited. Now, to scratch that musical itch he has, the director may be taking over for Favreau.

Centring on the story of Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons and their rise to fame, the propert currently belongs to Graham King of Gk Films, who was developing the film with Favreau over at Columbia not too long ago. King then brought it to Warner Bros., who then put it into turnaround shortly after. »
