Gay-Tease Kings Nick Jonas And James Franco Team Up On Fraternity Movie “Goat”

Nick Jonas isn’t letting any moss gather under him: As his DirecTV series Kingdom goes into hiatus, he’s signed on to co-star in Goat, a drama about two brothers who rush the same fraternity.

Reeling from a terrifying assault, 19-year-old Brad Land (Ben Schnetzer) enrolls in college with his charismatic younger brother (Nick Jonas) and pledges the same fraternity.

What happens there, in the name of “brotherhood,” tests the boy and his loyalty to his brother in brutal ways.

The film, an adaptation of Brad Land’s searing memoir, will be directed by Andrew Neel, with James Franco’s Rabbit Bandini Productions and Christine Vachon of Killer Films producing.

With Franco and Jonas involved, we’re sure the film will have its fair share of homoeroticism—not that a story about frat hazing gone awry wouldn’t go there anyway.

Jonas’ co-star, Ben Schnetzer is currently appearing as a young gay activist in the Golden Globe-nominated Pride and will be seen in the upcoming film adaptation of Warcraft.

His role was originally intended for Emile Hirsch in an earlier version of the film.
