Variety is reporting that Jason Momoa is set to produce and star in Netflix revenge drama Sweet Girl.
Sweet Girl is set to focus on a husband who vows to bring justice to the people responsible for his wife’s death, while also protecting his daughter.
The script was written by Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner, with Will Staples working on current revisions.
Jason Momoa released a statement saying:
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.
Producer Jeff Fierson, ASAP Entertainment, added:
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. 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.
Also producing Momoa and Fierson is Brad Peyton under the ASAP Entertainment banner. Brian Andrew Mendoza will make his directorial feature debut with the project, having produced previous Momoa-led projects such as Road to Paloma, Braven and television series Frontier. Martin Kistler will serve as executive producer on the project.
