Popular band, The Jonas Brothers, will make their big-screen debut in “Walter the Farting Dog,” a film based on the series of bestselling children’s books by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray, Variety reports.
Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas – plus younger brother Frankie, nicknamed the “Bonus Jonas” – will play musical siblings who babysit their aunt’s flatulent pooch.
“By the time they’ve driven the dog home, everybody’s head is out the window of the family station wagon, except for Frankie, and only because he has a serious sinus problem and doesn’t notice the stench coming from Walter,” director Peter Farrelly told Variety about the movie’s script.
Walter and the brothers will get into several funny situations, like thwarting jewel thieves and saving koi. The movie is set to begin filming in January.
The Jonas Brothers are currently shooting a new TV series in which they’ll play a band trying to balance fame and teenage life. “J.O.N.A.S.!” is set to launch on the Disney Channel next spring.
