The man who gave us both Elf and Iron Man might be bringing us something very special…
Jon Favreau is the frontrunner to direct the movie version of the hit musical Jersey Boys!
The adaptation has been in the works for two years now, but hasn't really taken off. Now, it has Graham King behind the producing wheel, and it's moving forward. Back in January, new writers were hired — including Rango scribe John Logan.
We're getting reports now that Jon is sittin' pretty to direct!
Jon, however, has never made a musical. But if you can go from making Elf to making Iron Man, we're pretty sure you can do anything.
We'll be interested to see if he actually signs on. We DEF think he's creative enough to handle it!
Do U think he's a good choice??
