Starz Buys U.S. Rights to Nick Jonas-Starring Thriller 'Careful What You Wish For'

Starz announced today it has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum’s new thriller “Careful What You Wish For,” starring Nick Jonas and Isabel Lucas. Written by Chris Frisina, the film also stars Graham Rogers and Dermot Mulroney.

Billed as a “steamy thriller,” the film official’s synopsis reads: “Set in a wealthy vacation community, ‘Careful What You Wish For’ is a story of seduction, deceit and betrayal. The summer before he leaves for college a young man (Jonas) begins an affair with the beautiful wife (Lucas) of his powerful investment banker neighbor (Mulroney). The plot thickens when a suspicious death embroils the young lovers in scandal.” That all seems like a very bad idea indeed.
