Khal Drogo, Aquaman, whatever you want to call him, Jason Momoa’s going to star in vengeance-themed movie, Sweet Girl, after turning down the reboot of The Crow. Not only will he star, though; he will also produce the picture alongside director Brian Andrew Mendoza, Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson.
Mendoza will be making his directorial debut with the movie having previously worked with Momoa on the famous movies Braven and Frontier. Mendoza was a producer for the former and an executive producer for the latter. An impressive resumé, if anyone is taking notes.
The action film’s storyline starts with a devastated husband who promises to bring vengeance to his late wife while also protecting his daughter. We’ve surely seen other movies with the same plot, but surely Momoa and the rest of the crew has a trick or two up their sleeve.
It’s going to be exciting when those starring and creating the picture are also excited to feature the project with Netflix, “I’m excited to partner with Netflix once again,” said Momoa. “I’m putting a dream team together from Brad and Jeff to my best friend, Brian, who has been my partner for over ten years. It’s a dream come true to collaborate with him and deliver his vision,”
“Jason and Brian are like family, so to re-team with them on a movie after working for three seasons of Frontier, is a dream come true. When we first read this script, we knew there was only one actor who could bring the gravitas and depth to the role of Cooper, and that’s Jason. And this is the perfect vehicle for Brian to make his directorial debut.”
“Brad and I are ecstatic about bringing another project to Netflix, who have truly made us feel like we have a home to make groundbreaking original features and series,” said Fierson.
Total “Yay” for Netflix relationships!
Jason Momoa has been the face of media for a couple of times now. Starring in Aquamanas Arthur Curry (or should I say the King of Atlantis) which grossed $1 billion worldwide for DC and the Warner Bros. I mean, starring in HBO’s Game of Thrones surely has something to do with the success of his career, I’m assuming.
