The Jonas Brothers will make their feature film debut in ‘Walter the Farting Dog,’ reports Variety. Based on a bestselling series of books by William Kotzwinkle & Glenn Murray, the film is being adapted into a family film that will revolve around Nick, Joe, Kevin & Frankie Jonas.
Shooting starts next spring and is a potential directing project for Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The title character in the ‘Walter’ books is a fat dog with severe flatulence. The brothers play musicians whose parents are asked to care for the dog by an aunt just before she passes away.Peter Farrelly said, ‘By the time they’ve driven the dog
home, everybody’s head is out the window of the family station wagon
but Frankie, and only because he has a serious sinus problem and
doesn’t notice the stench coming from Walter.’
While his brothers play music, Frankie and the gaseous hound get
involved in a plot that involves liberating a koi fish and thwarting
jewel thieves. The boys are repped by CAA and managed by Kevin
Jonas & Phil Levine.
