Hot on the heels of his recent JoBros break-up (sniff), teen idol Nick Jonas is doffing his duds and aiming for leading man status with sex thriller Careful What You Wish For. Jonas stars in his film acting debut as a young man whose affair with the trophy wife next door (Isabel Lucas) spirals out of control when her investment banker husband (Dermot Mulroney) winds up dead. Aquamarine and Ramona and Beezus director Elizabeth Allen steps into steamier territory herself with the Hyde Park-Image Nation and Troika Pictures’ pic, which is eyeing a 2014 release but has yet to lock distribution. Jonas Tweeted out the teaser sending his 7.6M followers into a frenzy:
EXCLUSIVE: Paul Sorvino boards alongside Nick Jonas, Isabel Lucas, Graham Rogers and Dermot Mulroney in Careful What You Wish For, the thriller written by Chris Frisina and Gregg Hurwitz and directed by Elizabeth Allen. In the story, Doug (Jonas) gets more than he bargained for when he starts having an affair with Lena (Lucas), the young wife of an investment banker (Mulroney) renting the lake house next door for the summer. The husband’s suspicious death reveals a substantial life insurance policy. Sorvino will play a sheriff in the pic, which kicks off filming next week in North Carolina.
