NICK Jonas is in final talks to star in ‘Goat’.
The ‘Kingdom’ actor is reportedly set to close a deal with James Franco’s Rabbit Bandini Productions and Killer Films to star in the movie adaptation of Brad Land’s real-life memoir.
The indie picture – which will be directed by Andrew Neel – follows the bond of two brothers, played by Jonas and ‘Pride’ star Ben Schnetzer, who join a fraternity after the elder brother (Schnetzer) is assaulted.
The script will be based on an early draft by David Gordon Green, and has been co-written by Neel and Mike Roberts, reports The Wrap.
Schnetzer has replaced Emile Hirsch who was originally attached to star when Gordon Green was at the helm.
Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa are producing the movie alongside Franco and Rabbit Bandini’s Vince Jolivette.
Jon Wells has also signed on to executive produce the film which is yet to receive a release date.
Jonas has come along way since he started out his career on the Disney channel after being cast as MMA fighter Nate Kulina in the TV series ‘Kingdom’.
He is also set to star in Elizabeth Allen’s thriller “Careful What You Wish For”. – BANG!
