Jason Momoa to Star in JUST CAUSE Film Adaptation; Brad Peyton To Direct
According to Deadline, Jason Momoa will star in a feature film based on the popular Square Enix video game Just Cause. San Andreas director Brad Peyton will direct the project. Both Momoa and Peyton have worked together before on Netflix’s Frontier.
The film will follow Rico Rodriguez (Momoa) who is an operative for an organization known as the Agency. As of now the plot of the film is under wraps but it is expected to deal in some way with Rico’s crisis of conscience while on a mission.
John Collee (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) will be writing the script.
The project is being produced by Peyton and Jeff Fierson through their ASAP Entertainment banner and Roy Lee through his Vertigo Entertainment, Adrian Askarieh through his banner Prime Universe Films; Eva Cao through her Supernova Entertainment; and Mason XU and Fan Dong through DNA Co. Ltd. China-based DNA also provided the financing for the film.
Release date has not been set yet.
