"Jersey Boys" is working its way to the big screen.

The first trailer for the film adaptation of the Broadway hit "Jersey Boys" was released on Friday, April 18, and can be seen below.

The movie, directed by Oscar-winning director and actor Clint Eastwood, tells the true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the group behind hits like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like A Man" and "December, 1963 [Oh What A Night]."

John Lloyd Young reprises his role from the Broadway show as lead singer Frankie Valli. Young won a Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his role in the musical. The film also stars "Boardwalk Empire" actor Vincent Piazza as Tommy DeVito, Erich Bergen as Bob Gaudio and Michael Lomenda as Nick Massi.

Christopher Walken also appears in the movie as a mob boss. The film marks Eastwood's first foray into a musical film. He also serves as a producer on the project.

The movie appears to stick closely to the structure of the musical by having each member of the band narrate a part of their story. It also includes several songs from the band's musical catalogue, a few of which can be heard in the trailer.

"Jersey Boys" hits theaters on June 20.
