Jonas Brothers to star in farting dog movie

The Jonas Brothers have signed with 20th Century Fox to star in the movie version of the popular children’s book “Walter the Farting Dog.”

For the boy band — Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas, and their younger brother Frankie — it will be their first feature film.

Variety reports that the movie, based on the bestselling series of books by William Kotzwinkle and Glenn Murray, will begin shooting next spring.

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.

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.

This is what I miss by having grown children. Here’s a great kids’ book I never got to read. I’m going to have to either lobby harder for grandchildren, hire myself out as a babysitter, or maybe somebody out there would like to lend me a kid together with his/her complete library of favorites. If I thought Spencer would behave, I’d encourage him to become a Karma Dog so he could read with kids the way Ace does.
