Clint Eastwood Put Beyonce on Hold for Jersey Boys

Clint Eastwood put his remake of A Star is Born starring Beyonce on hold to direct flop Jersey Boys.

Clint Eastwood put plans to direct Beyonce in the remake of A Star Is Born on hold to get behind the camera for new film Jersey Boys.
The veteran actor/director tells WENN he was “entertaining” starting work on the revamp of Frederic March’s 1937 movie when the adaptation of the hit Broadway Frankie Valli musical became available to him.
He explains, “When this came along I went to the head of the studio who had passed on it. I asked, ‘Why would you pass on that? It is a popular play and it’s still running, so there must be something there’. And finally he called me asking if I would entertain doing it because they were coming back into it. He said, ‘Would you do this and set the other one aside?’
“I said I would because, at the time, this was a lot more ready to go than the other project, which is still not completed satisfactorily to me, writing-wise.”
And theater fans felt Eastwood had clearly made the right choice: “I got a standing ovation for actually going to the men’s room when I was at the Broadway show. That’s probably the first and last time that’ll ever happen!”

And her movie will be a flop just like 4lop, just like on the lack luster run tour. Nobody wants to see pretentious Beyonce on the big screen.

Clint did Jersey Boys an injustice by directing it! It was
too long and the musical numbers were lacking. Too bad,
I love the Jersey Boys on Broadway/Las Vegas.

Beyonce is too old for this movie. This needed to be done years and years ago....SMDH! I honestly wish she would just sit the fuck down already and focus on her household for once. I guess if she divorces she will have to find another way to annoy the fuck out of us huh?

SHE CAN'T ACT...No one wants to see her in this movie. Leave well enough alone.

Let her stick to grinding on stage...while her hubby grinds on other women.
