Nick Jonas mourned the loss of his MMA TV show “Kingdom” as it came to an end. For Nick and any fans of his work on screens small or large, there’s good news. He’s landed a role in a new post-apocalyptic thriller due out in 2019. Opposite rising stars like Tom Holland from “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and Daisy Ridley from the new “Star Wars” trilogy, Nick will play the villain’s rebellious son in “Chaos Walking.”
Based on a series of books, the movie is about a world in which things going viral is bad news. That’s because a virus has killed off almost all the women on the colony planet, and another virus on the world makes people hallucinate. Nick’s character is Davy Prentiss, Jr., a soldier enlisted in his father’s army who can’t get over the fact that his dad likes Tom’s character better.
It sounds like a dark turn for the actor who’s made his name as a more lovable type of character. But maybe Nick’s just ready for his acting career to get more complicated.
