‘Aquaman’ star, Jason Momoa, is set to star and produce Brian Andrew Mendoza’s Netflix thriller ‘Sweet Girl’.

Momoa will play the role of a husband who vows to bring justice to the people responsible for his wife’s death while also protecting his daughter.

Mendoza, who has previously worked with Momoa on ‘Brazen’ and ‘Frontier’, makes his feature directorial debut on a script by Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner with current revisions by Will Staples.

Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson will also serve as producers.

I’m excited to partner with Netflix once again,” Momoa said. “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.

“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 said. “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.”

Momoa was last in DC’s ‘Aquaman’, his upcoming projects include Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ reboot and the TV series ‘See’ which is set in a dystopian future where the human race has lost the sense of sight, and society has had to find new ways to interact, build, hunt, and to survive. All of that is challenged when a set of twins with sight is born.
