Music has always been a big part of Clint Eastwood's career, with the filmmaker also serving as composer and songwriter for a strong handful of his films, yet he's never actually made a musical. Outside of the biopic "Bird" and an episode of the PBS series "The Blues," Eastwood has never really had the chance to dig elbows deep into movie with wall-to-wall music, but now the director who seems to have done it all, will cross the genre off his bucket list.

Jersey Boys,

Music has always been a big part of Clint Eastwood's career, with the filmmaker also serving as composer and songwriter for a strong handful of his films, yet he's never actually made a musical. Outside of the biopic "Bird" and an episode of the PBS series "The Blues," Eastwood has never really had the chance to dig elbows deep into movie with wall-to-wall music, but now the director who seems to have done it all, will cross the genre off his bucket list.

The first trailer for "Jersey Boys" is here, bringing all the songs of the hit Broadway show to the big screen. Starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda and Christopher Walken, and penned by John Logan ("Hugo," "Skyfall"), the films will tell the tale of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, documenting the rise and fall of the successful rock 'n' roll group of the 1960s, one of the best-selling bands of all time. 

So, will this win over audiences this summer, where another big screen musical adaptation based off a hit show failed? (We're looking at you "Rock Of Ages"). Hit theaters on June 20th to find out. Watch below.
