Clint Eastwood Directing Jersey Boys Film

The Frank Valli and the Four Seasons musical Jersey Boys is currently running at the Prince Edward Theatre.

A film of the musical is due to be made later this year with the screenplay by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, who wrote the book for the musical. Franki Valli and Bob Gaudio are the executive producers.

Updated 22nd May: Oscar-winning actor, director and filmmaker Clint Eastwood is now confirmed to direct the big-screen adaptation.

Auditions are currently under way  and the film will begin shooting late this summer in Los Angeles. Graham King ("Argo") and Robert Lorenz ("Million Dollar Baby") are producing the film.

Eastwood has directed 32 films including Million Dollar Baby, Invictus and Mystic River and  apparently wants to work on Jersey Boys after the casting delays on A Star Is Born which Beyonce was due to star in.
