There were quite a few raised eyebrows when it was announced that Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood was going to direct the big screen adaptation of the hit musical Jersey Boys, after all Clint is not exactly renowned for his light, airy, fun time movies. However, Eastwood is a huge fan of music so could well do a great job on the film and, from looking at the first Jersey Boys trailer, he has not done too bad a job.
If you are not very familiar with the story behind Jersey Boys (where have you been all your life), the official movie synopsis is described as, "The story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons."
As for the cast of the upcoming musical movie, Jersey Boys stars John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda, and Christopher Walken. Jersey Boys is directed by Clint Eastwood from a script that was ultimately put together from Marshall Brickman, Rick Elice and John Logan, with the movie hitting the big screen on June 20 in both the US and the UK.
We still have quite a few more weeks left to wait until we get to see what Clint Eastwood hs come up with for the Jersey Boys musical movie but, while we wait for the film to hit the big screen, why not sit back, relax and prepare to get your foot tapping with the new Jersey Boys trailer below.
