Momoa reunited with long-time friend Brian Andrew Mendoza, who will make his feature directorial debut with Sweet Girl. Mendoza and Momoa previously collaborated on 2018 thriller Braven. Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson are also on board to produce Sweet Girl, with Martin Kistler executive producing. Peyton worked with Momoa before in the production of Canadian drama series Frontier.
Jason Momoa is set to produce and star in a new Netflix revenge thriller called Sweet Girl. The Aquaman actor will play Cooper, a shattered husband and loving father who is committed to avenging the death of his wife. While he brings justice to those responsible for her death, he must keep his only daughter safe during all those intense fight scenes.
As for Momoa, he’s recently wrapped an ultrasuccessful run at the box office with Aquaman, which brought in $1 billion since its release in December. He’s also just finished filming the 2020 remake and adaptation of the iconic science-fiction novel Dune, starring Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet.
Momoa’s film career is officially picking up some A-list momentum this Summer, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
Jason Momoa Shared His Reaction to the GOT Finale, and Surprise, He’s Still Team Daenerys
Please respect Jason Momoa’s privacy during this time. He’s going through the Game of Thrones stages of grief. The 39-year-old actor hasn’t been on the HBO show since season one, but his bond with the cast and his character, Khal Drogo, runs deep. Like many devoted viewers, Momoa recently tuned in for the GOT series finale and streamed his reaction on an Instagram Live so his fans could follow along.
Warning: spoilers for the Game of Thrones series finale!
“F*ck it all, it’s going down,” he said before the episode began. “Khaleesi, I love you. Emilia, I love you. So sorry I wasn’t there for you.” Momoa also thanked the show’s creators for giving him the opportunity to play Drogo back in 2011. He then dove into the episode, and oh boy, it was an emotional roller coaster. He mouthed “I love you” when Daenerys Targaryen showed up on screen, and started dropping F-bombs left and right after Jon Snow stabbed her in the stomach.
“Let me get this straight,” Momoa said after hearing Tyrion Lannister’s plan for Jon to return to the Night’s Watch. “You’re going back to what the f*ck you did in the first place and you killed Khaleesi?” “I feel lost. I’m lost,” he continued. “What the f*ck?! Drogon should’ve f*cking melted his ass. Ugh, and the goddamn bar is closed!”
Momoa also left an Instagram comment for Clarke after the episode ended, and wrote, “Baby that episode killed me.” Looks like he’s joining the large portion of fans dissatisfied with Sunday’s finale, although we’d advise against him signing any petitions. That doesn’t seem like something his Dragon Queen would take very well.
