Jason Momoa shows no signs of slowing down. His next movie is the revenge thriller “Sweet Girl,” which comes out on Netflix on August 20. He plays Ray Cooper, a grieving widower who sets out to bring the powerful people he holds responsible for his wife’s death to justice. And against his wishes, his teenage daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced) joins him in his fight. The film is about some of the things that are important to Momoa and show up in most of his projects: family, integrity, and bone-crunching action. And that’s just one of the exciting flicks Momoa has on deck.
Later this year, he’ll play a major supporting role in the much-anticipated sci-fi film “Dune” as Duncan Idaho, a great warrior and one of author Frank Herbert’s most memorable characters. And in 2022, he’ll pick up the trident again for “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” the second standalone “Aquaman” film. Further down the line, he’ll star in the fantasy comic book adaptation “Slumberland.”
Jason Momoa’s career trajectory is awesome. He found great success by being exactly who he is. He’s gone from working in a surf shop to designing his own signature surfboard, which proves that anything is possible.
