It looks like Jon Favreau’s big screen version of the successful Broadway musical, Jersey Boys, hit a roadblock, as Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has decided to stop production on the film and that the project is now in a turnaround. This report claims that the studio "was never high on the project which, given its subject matter, may have limited appeal to international [audiences]."
Despite the bad news, Favreau is still attached to direct the movie, which has a script by John Logan. The good news is that the site is also reporting that Paramount Pictures is holding a meeting tomorrow with Graham King of GK Films, the movie’s production company, about the possibility of the adaptation landing at that studio. We’ll keep you updated as details become available.
