Jason Momoa who recently starred in Hollywood film Aquaman, which grossed more than $1 billion worldwide, is all set to produce and star in upcoming Netflix revenge film Sweet Girl
Reportedly, Momoa will play Cooper, a shattered husband and loving father who is committed to avenging the death of his wife.
The action film will follow his struggle to bring justice to those responsible for his wife’s death, and he must keep the only family he has left, his daughter.
Momoa reunites with long-time friend Brian Andrew Mendoza who is making his feature directorial debut with Sweet Girl after previously working together on 2018 thriller Braven and Netflix series Frontier.
Sweet Girl is being written by the writers Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner, as well as Will Staples, who has written the latest draft.
Momoa and Mendoza will be producing Sweer Girl along with San Andreas director Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson of ASAP Entertainment, while Martin Kistler (On the Roam) will serve as executive producer.
While talking about his latest project Mamoa said, “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 ten years. It’s a dream come true to collaborate with him and deliver his vision”.
“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.
He further added, “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.”
