Jersey Boys Featurette: Why Clint Eastwood Chose to Direct

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Warner Bros. has released a behind-the-scenes featurette for Clint Eastwood’s next directorial effort, Jersey Boys. Now, some may wonder why Eastwood is tackling a musical, and he explores that in the below featurette.

But, if you know the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, it makes perfect sense.

As teased in the Jersey Boys trailer, this is the story of the boys from the projects of Newark, New Jersey, who became the biggest pop stars in the world. Their tale was captured in the Tony Award-winning musical, and now it’s up to Eastwood to bring it to the big screen.

And as huge Christopher Walken fans, we at Movie Fanatic are eager to see his take on the mobster who had a “slight” hand in Valli’s success. And we love Walken’s comments in the above featurette.

Jersey Boys lands in cinemas June 20.
