Hyde Park-Image Nation and Troika Pictures have announced that actor-singer Nick Jonas will star as the male lead opposite Isabel Lucas in the edgy thriller Careful What You Wish For. The film is directed by Elizabeth Allen (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Aquamarine”) and written by Chris Frisina and Gregg Hurwitz. Careful What You Wish For will be the Grammy-nominated musician’s first lead acting role in a feature film.

In the story, Doug (Jonas) gets more than he bargained for when he starts having an affair with Lena (Lucas), the young wife of an investment banker renting the lake house next door for the summer. The husband’s suspicious death reveals a substantial life insurance policy.

The central roles of Sheriff “Big Jack,” and Insurance Investigator “Alvarez” are yet to be cast. Everyone is suspect in this edgy thriller reminiscent of “Basic Instinct” and “Body Heat.”
