Clint Eastwood has begun casting for his musical adaptation Jersey Boys, the story of 1960s' American pop group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

According to Variety, the Gran Tarino star will direct the feature for Warner Bros and the magazine reports that he is looking at Boardwalk Empire's Vincent Piazza, who played Lucky Luciano in the series, to join the cast.

If the deals go to plan, Piazza would be cast as Tommy Devito and Broadway actors John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen and Michael Lomenda would play Frank Valli, Bob Gaudio and Nick Massi respectively.

The film, which was written by Skyfall's John Logan, hasn't been given a release date as of yet.
