Here's the First Trailer for the Clint Eastwood-Directed Film Version of 'Jersey Boys'

This is the first look at the on-screen adaptation of the Broadway smash hit Jersey Boys, directed by Clint Eastwood. Yes, that Clint Eastwood. Frankly, we're all a little surprised.

Jersey Boys tells the story of The Four Seasons, four boys from Jersey who became the biggest band in the world in the mid-1960s. John Lloyd Young plays Frankie Valli, the only member of the Broadway cast who is also in the film. The cast also includes Boardwalk Empire's Vincent Piazza.

Anyone who's seen the musical (which I'm pretty sure is just everyone by now), knows that each member of the Seasons narrates a part of the show. From the trailer, it looks like Eastwood has deployed a House of Cards-style breaking of the fourth wall in order to accommodate that narration. The film is set to come out June 20, so get ready to have "Big Girls Don't Cry" stuck in your head for the next two months.
