Washington (ANI): American boy band 'Jonas Brothers' are all set to make their feature-starring debut in 'Walter the Farting Dog' at 20th Century Fox. The movie is based on the best-selling series of books by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray, which is being adapted by Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen into a family film, reports Variety magazine.
The film will revolve around Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas, as well as their younger brother Frankie, and it is a potential directing project for Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who'll produce with Bradley Thomas through the trio's Conundrum banner. "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," Variety magazine quoted Peter Farrelly as saying.
The studio sees a potential franchise in 'Walter,' and the scribes have been involved in hatching the franchises 'Toy Story' and 'Garfield' with Tom Kartsotis and Steve O'Brien as exec producers.
