Jersey Boys is the big-screen adaptation of the Tony award-winning musical about the rise and fall of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The band, one of the best-selling musical groups of all time, was known for hits "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Grease" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."
Christopher Walken, Jeremy Luke, Vincent Piazza and Joey Russo are set to appear in the film.
The only other wide release slated for that June 2014 date is the sequel Think Like a Man Too.
Affleck wrote the screenplay and will direct Live by Night, which is based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name. Other than Affleck, no other cast is currently known. Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way is producing.
The story is about the making and unmaking of a gangster in the prohibition era.
The holiday 2015 date is only shared by Kung Fu Panda 3 at this time.
