Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys' Debuts Its First Trailer
Does Eastwood need stars to make Jersey Boys sing? Absolutely not. The music is the star of this show, and so long as the director found guys who can harmonize as well as the original Four Seasons (or the singers who brought the show to Broadway), then the movie has a puncher’s chance at succeeding.

Jersey Boys Actress To Reprise Role In Movie Version
It was last month when it was reported that Eastwood would be avoiding casting big name actors to star as the members of the band, but apparently Walken may only be the first on what will be a growing list. According to Deadline, the star will be the one of "several stars who’ll add some name recognition to the production."

Christopher Walken Joins Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys
This is a surprising move as it's practically Hollywood tradition to ditch the stage stars for bigger names that have a broader box office appeal. That being said, it's kind of an awful tradition, especially considering some stage performers helped define these characters that people cling to, and then all the mainstream glory goes to the flashier star who follows in their footsteps.

Clint Eastwood Avoiding Movie Stars For Jersey Boys Adaptation
For a short time things were looking up for director Jon Favreau's adaptation of the Broadway hit Jersey Boys. Originally the project was struggling over at Sony, as the studio and the filmmakers couldn't see eye to eye about the budget, but things immediately looked up when GK Films, the production company behind the movie, signed a deal with Warner Bros...
Graham King and Tim Headington, founders of GK Films, have had a part in many great films from the last decade, such as Hugo, Rango, The Departed, The Town and Traffic, and now they're moving their business over to Warner Bros. The duo have signed an exclusive first-look one year deal at the studio and, what gives this story an interesting twist, is that they're bringing Jon Favreau's upcoming adaptation of the Broadway hit Jersey Boys with them.

Open Casting Call For Jon Favreau's Jersey Boys Musical
Favreau was born in New York, which gives him ties to both Broadway and nearby Jersey, but otherwise he's a pretty baffling choice for the job-- he was barely born when The Four Seasons, the subjects of the play, were topping the music charts, and he's never directed anything close to a musical in his career
