JERSEY BOYS Movie East Coast Round-Up! Valli & Eastwood On Set, Stars Tweet, New Pics
The highly anticipated big screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical JERSEY BOYS recently finished the majority of its filming on location and on soundstages in California under the direction of master director Clint Eastwood and the cast and crew returned to the roots of the largely East Coast-set tale this week to capture a few on location moments depicting the impossible to imitate atmosphere of the real New Jersey, which is so elemental to the story of the Four Seasons.
Sharing photos from the on location shoot, cast and crew took to social media this week to give fans a look behind the scenes at the movie musical as it completes production.
First, JERSEY BOYS star Erich Bergen posted to his Twitter account, "That's a wrap. Thanks, Boss" along with a pic of himself alongside director Clint Eastwood, before sharing another candid view of the director and himself later in the week.
Fellow JERSEY BOYS headliner Renee Marino also posted a photo of herself with Eastwood, captioning hers, "Love this man!
#jerseyboysmovie is a wrap!!!"

Also, JERSEY BOYS featured player Johnny Cannizzaro updated his Twitter and Instagram account with a shot shared with Eastwood, too, noting, "Congrats to my cast mates shooting the final day of #JerseyBoysMovie today in Jersey! "That's a wrap!" What an amazing experience w/ amazing people! So grateful!!"

Additionally, cast and crew from JERSEY BOYS were spotted in Kearny, New Jersey, transforming local Elm Street into a 1960s-era location fit for the tale of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, in a sequence featuring Vincent Piazza, among others.
Of note, the man behind the music himself, Frankie Valli, was on set for the occasion, as well.
As BroadwayWorld reported last month, Frankie Valli has expressed extreme satisfaction with the feature film and its director, available here. Also, see BroadwayWorld's previous round-ups of JERSEY BOYS filming here and here.
JERSEY BOYS is directed by Clint Eastwood based upon the Broadway musical featuring the music and lyrics of Bob Gaudio & Bob Crewe, written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. The film stars John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda, Mike Doyle and Christopher Walken.
