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.
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.

Debbie Dalton’s Chihuahua is buzzing — and she has no idea why.
Frankie emits what sounds like high-pitched radio signals from his ears, the Associated Press reports.
Dalton’s home in Geneva, Ohio has eleven dogs, but Frankie, she says, stands out from the others, something she realized a couple of months ago.
“Frankie’s walking along the back of the sofa and I got closer and closer and I said ‘Oh my goodness …it’s the dog that’s buzzing.’”
Dalton says the noise doesn’t seem to bother Frankie, and it helps her when she loses track of Frankie outside. All she has to do is listen.
Her vet has no idea what the problem is, says Dalton, who’d like to see it solved.
“(When) he’s sleeping facing me, I have to move because i can hardly hear the TV.”
