Rumour has it that Jon Favreau (director of the Iron Man franchise), is tipped to direct the upcoming movie adaptation of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys.
Jersey Boys tells the story of how Valli, Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi became one of the top-singing groups of the '60s before they even turned 30. Like the show, the film will incorporate hits such as “Sherry,” “Oh What a Night,” Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” The production won four 2006 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and London’s 2009 Olivier Award for Best Musical.
In addition to the Iron Man films, Favreau has directed Cowboys & Aliens, Zathura, Elf and Made. As an actor he has appeared in films such as Swingers, I Love You Man, Four Christmases, The Break-Up and Deep Impact.
