Ben Schnetzer and Nick Jonas have landed starring roles in an adaptation of Brad Land’s 2005 memoir, GOAT. Land’s original memoirs follow the journey of two brothers as they pledge the same fraternity and subsequently become immersed in a world of hazing and secrecy. Schnetzer will be replacing Emilie Hirsch as the lead, and Jonas will jump into the role of Schnetzer’s more charismatic younger brother. The film will be produced by James Franco’s Rabbity Bandini Productions with Andrew Neel now slated to direct.
Schnetzer was most recently seen in dramatic projects such as Pride and The Book Thief, however if you yet to recognize his talents you still have time. Coming up, Schnetzer will be starring in Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club and James Merendio’s Punk’s Dead. No stranger to the big screen himself, Jonas has, in recent years, shed his Disney persona and begun settling into more dramatic roles, first with his television series Kingdom, and then with the thriller Careful What You Wish For.
