Un musical diretto da Clint Eastwood? Sì, non è uno scherzo.
Jersey Boys racconta la vera storia di Frankie Valli e del suo complesso, The Four Seasons, nel loro viaggio verso il successo degli anni ’60.
Nel cast John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda e Christopher Walken.
Il film uscirà il 20 giugno per la Warner Bros.
Forse per il pubblico americano di una certa età il film può avere un appeal, ma per noi europei? 4 attori sconosciuti, un musical e una storia vecchia di 50 anni che nessuno conosce… l’unico motivo di interesse è il nome Eastwood.
The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “Who Loves You,” and many more.
These classic hits are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical, which has been running on Broadway for more than eight years and has also enjoyed successful tours around the globe.
Starring in the film, John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group’s biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of The Four Seasons. Oscar® winner Christopher Walken (“The Deer Hunter”) stars as mobster Gyp DeCarlo.
Oscar® winner Eastwood (“Million Dollar Baby,” “Unforgiven”) directed “Jersey Boys” from a screenplay and musical book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, song music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The film is produced by Eastwood, Graham King and Robert Lorenz.
