After moving from Sony Pictures to Warner Bros. in September, Jon Favreau's upcoming Jersey Boys has been put into turnaround, Variety reports. The film could now either again head to a different studio or become delayed indefinitely.

Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and their meteoric rise from blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks to one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide all before they were thirty.

With over $1 billion in ticket sales and currently playing worldwide, the musical opened on Broadway in 2005. Produced by Dodger Theatricals, the Broadway musical is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, and direction by Des McAnuff.

Production on Jersey Boys was planned to begin in early next year with a release date planned for Christmas 2013. Whether or not the film manages to keep that schedule remains to be seen.
