It will be some time until we see Jason Momoa take to the seven seas again as DC’s Aquaman and the star will also be seen in the highly anticipated remake of Dune but the actor isn’t stopping there as Variety is bringing word that he will also star in and produce a new revenge thriller for Netflix titled Sweet Girl.
Per the report, Momoa will play a man who vows vengeance for the death of his wife but also is tasked with protecting his very own daughter at the same time.
Sweet Girl is set to be helmed by Brian Andrew Mendoza from a script written by Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner. This won’t be the first time that Momoa and Mendoza have teamed up as they have also worked with each other on the 2018 action-thriller Braven as well as the series Frontier which is also a Netflix original.
In regards to the new project, Momoa made an official statement: ““I’m excited to partner with Netflix once again. I’m putting a dream team together from Brad and Jeff to my best friend, Brian, who has been my partner for over 10 years. It’s a dream come true to collaborate with him and deliver his vision
Momoa will produce the film as well alongside Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson.
“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,” Fierson added. “Additionally, 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.”
The project is in the early stages so expect more details to drop in the future!
