Hollywood heartthrob, Joe Jonas is putting music on the back burner as he gets ready to take the silver screen by storm! Are you excited?
Ever since Justin Bieber dethroned the Jonas Brothers as the king of tween hearts around the world, we’ve watched Joe, 22, Nick, 19 and Kevin, 23, move on and focus their energies on things like solo music projects, marriage and now, movies. Yup! Turns out the middle JoBro is emerging as a film aficionado and is moving forward with plans to produce and star in his first feature length movie!
While we all know Joe has expressed an interest in acting, we had no idea he was so serious! Turns out, he’s been developing his current film project since earlier this year and told E! Online that financial backing finally came through.
“I was in Mexico City last week and my manager called me and said, ‘The movie’s financed!’” Joe said. “I was, like, in tears.”
Joe has been completely open with fans and poured his heart out about past relationships into his anticipated solo album “Fast Life” (out Oct. 11), but when asked about his film he was a little more vague.
“The storyline is still bare bones, but I will say he has a specific dream that he wants to accomplish, and it’s the good and the bad he has to go through to get there,” he said. “It’s going to be an older-feeling kind of movie. It’s a little bit of everything. One of my favorite movies is The Four Feathers, and that has everything. It has funny, romantic, passionate…I want to do something like that.”
Sounds good to us! Are you excited to see Joe act or do you think he should stick to music? Sound off in the comments below!
