Joe Jonas Joe Jonas has landed a big-money movie role. The pop star has been developing the project for months, and he tells E! News he was thrilled when he heard the film was financed.

He says, "I was in Mexico City last week and my manager called me and said, 'The movie's financed!' I was, like, in tears."

But he isn't giving much away about the plot: "The storyline is still bare bones, but I will say he (my character) has a specific dream that he wants to accomplish, and it's the good and the bad he has to go through to get there."

The script is being written by Robert Munic, who co-wrote Channing Tatum's 2009 movie "Fighting."
