After Beyonce backed out of a Star is Born last October, Clint Eastwood’s musical aspirations stalled. But ContactMusic says he has his eye on the Tony award-winning Broadway show Jersey Boys.
The director is reportedly set to take the musical – based around the career of vocal group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – to the big screen after casting issues have put his next project, ‘A Star is Born’, on hold.
Although Eastwood’s representatives and studio Warner Bros are playing their cards close to their chest, The Hollywood Reporter says multiple sources have confirmed the director is in talks to make the film.
The project was originally set up at Columbia Pictures with ‘Iron Man’ director Jon Favreau favourite to helm, but producer Graham King moved it to Warner Bros in September last year.
