AceShowbiz - Nick Jonas and Laurence Fishburne have signed on to front the first film in a major new action thriller franchise.

The singer, who has appeared in films such as "Jumanji: The Next Level", and "The Matrix" actor will join "Taken" director Pierre Morel for "The Blacksmith", in which Jonas will portray a weapons expert, known as a blacksmith, seeking out his mentor following an attack on his life.
