Since the Jonas Brothers split up in 2013, lead singer Nick has launched two solo albums and appeared on TV with the main role on three-season MMA drama “Kingdom.”
It was 2017’s action adventure “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” that reframed him as a film actor, popping up as a teenager stuck inside the same retro video game as Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan’s characters.
That US$962 million monster of a movie is coming back for more in Dec 2019, with the original film’s quintet joined by a number of new characters.
It’ll be the third film making space for the younger Jonas brother this year, barring any more surprise announcements, after US-Chinese animated co-production “UglyDolls” in May and then historical war film “Midway” in November, with a part in sci-fi adventure “Chaos Walking” lined up for 2020.
“Jumanji” newcomers Awkwafina, Danny DeVito and Danny Glover were announced in January, while Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman and Morgan Turner reprise their roles.
