Clint Eastwood Previews JERSEY BOYS At Cinema Con & Talks Show History
Legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood appeared live onstage yesterday at industry insider promotional mega-event Cinema Con and introduced the highly anticipated world premiere of footage from his forthcoming big screen adaptation of Tony Award-winning jukebox musical JERSEY BOYS.
Eastwood was met with a standing ovation by the rapt audience before showing a montage of scenes from the movie musical, including excerpts of some of the expected showstoppers as well as strong evidence that characters may directly address the audience over the course of the film, as they do in the hit stage show.
Eastwood relayed of the history of the project, "Nine years ago, it started in La Jolla California as a small get-together of actors portraying this play that they never thought would be anything."

JERSEY BOYS is set to be released in movie theaters on June 20.
