Nick Jonas & Laurence Fishburne Set To Star in Thriller Movie 'The Blacksmith'

Nick Jonas has joined Laurence Fishburne in the action-thriller movie, The Blacksmith.

According to Deadline, Nick is set to play Wes Loomis, a ‘Blacksmith’ – the intelligence community’s go-to weapons expert.

When his clandestine lab is destroyed and his colleagues murdered, he must go on the run with only his unique set of technological skills and the help of a brilliant, young CIA analyst Noelle Hazlitt to keep him alive.

They seek out Mather (Fishburne), a retired blacksmith and Wes’ mentor, to help guide them.

AGC Studios’s Stuart Ford, who will be producing, says of the movie, “The Blacksmith provides a fresh, highly contemporary new take on the espionage genre and it’s exciting to pair an exhilarating young talent like Nick with seasoned heavyweights such as Pierre [Morel] and Laurence.”

“We’ll soon be announcing an equally outstanding young female actor to play across from Nick and then we will have all the ingredients for a major new film franchise built around a very modern breed of action hero,” he added.

Stay tuned for more casting details on the movie!
