Jersey Boys was the biggest thing to hit Broadway a couple years ago, and now it's coming to a theater near you! A movie theater that is!
Director Clint Eastwood has brought the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to the big screen, and it looks just as fun and moving as the musical!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the first trailer for the film adaptation of Jersey Boys!

The successful Broadway musical, Jersey Boys, may in fact be making its way to the big screen. Better yet, it could in fact be led by Clint Eastwood at the helm!
The actor-turned-successful-director has yet to confirm his ties to the project, though we have NO doubt that the musical retelling of the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons would be in good hands if left with him as director.
Jon Favreau was formerly linked to the potential film, but things changed when producer Graham King took Jersey Boys to Warner Bros. We’re not the only ones sensing some dramz here, right??
According to sources, Jersey Boys would be followed by Clint’s remake of A Star Is Born.
We really hope this is true!!

So, so happy that they're together!
Couldn't resist, folks! We're in the Broadway SPIRIT!
Those crooning, hunkster, all-star cats The Midtown Men from the original Jersey Boys cast recently graced GMA with a delightful rendition of Happy Together (above)!
Ahhh, we are shaking our jazz-hands in SO much excitement for the movie version of this jukebox-style Broadway smash, especially if Iron Man/Elf director Jon Favreau helms the project!
And perhaps Will Ferrell and Robert Downey Jr. can join the cast as half of the Jersey quartet?!
Ha, best movie everrrr!

Celebs don't have family boardgames nights. They have family Broadway nights!!!
John Travolta and little Ella loved Jersey Boys SO much when they saw it in NYC, wife and mom Kelly Preston just had to check it out in Vegas!!
So she took her mama and some close friends and went straight to it!!
After the performance, they went backstage and Kelly raved about the music being WAYY better than almost any other show she's ever seen.
Family time success!!

Hugo is amazing. Jersey Boys is ah-mazing.
Why wouldn't we want John Logan to adapt the musical into a movie!?! He's clearly one of the best!!
Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons is being produced by GK Films' Graham King and Tim Headington.
