Beyond LA Cocktail Party Benefiting Beyond Type 1Nick Jonas is ready for some chaos.

The singer-slash-actor has joined "Chaos Walking," Variety reports. Jonas is in good company; the film's cast also includes "Spider-Man: Homecoming" star Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame.

The upcoming sci-fi flick is an adaptation of Patrick Ness's novel "Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go," which is set in a dystopian world where all creatures can hear others' thoughts as words, sounds, and images. When a boy named Todd finds a patch of silence, he and his dog have to flee. As they evade the people pursuing them, they are joined by a girl named Viola whom they encounter along the way.

We don't know which character Jonas will play yet, but depending on the role, he could appear in multiple films, as "Chaos Walking" is part of a series. Jonas has seemed happy to take on more movie roles in recent years, though. His recent credits include "Careful What You Wish For" and "Goat," plus the upcoming "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle."

The Doug Liman-directed film is slated to open March 1, 2019.
