According to BroadwayWorld.com, the cinematographic version of Jersey Boys has been abandoned by Warner Brothers. Director Jon Favreau was set to direct the flick and was already gathering a cast to shoot the movie for next year.
However, it seems like this bump in the road will not detain the film for long, as producer Graham King will soon pitch the idea to other studios.
Jersey Boys tells the story of the rock and pop band The Four Seasons, using the four members to tell the story of the birth, development and demise of the group in a structure that divides the story in four phases distinguished by a different season. The music and lyrics come from Bob Gaudio and Bob Crewe, and the book was written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice.
It opened in Broadway in 2005, and won the Tony for Best Musical that year. On October of 2010, GK Films acquired the rights to produce the film; and Favreau joined the crew as director on August of 2012.
