Jason Momoa Just Cause

The Wrap reports that Aquaman star Jason Momoa has signed on to headline a film adaptation of Avalanche Studios and Square Enix’s Just Cause video game series, with San Andreas director Brad Peyton at the helm.

Just Cause revolves around a character named Rico Rodriguez, who works as an operative for a mysterious organization known as the Agency. Plot details for the film are being kept under lock and key, but we know that Momoa is on board to play Rico.

John Collee wrote the script for the film, which is being produced by Peyton and Jeff Fierson trough ASAP Entertainment, with Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, Prime Universe Films’ Adrian Askarieh and Supernova Entertainment’s Eva Cao, as well as Mason Xu and Fan Dong through DNA, which also provided the financing for the project.

Momoa will next be seen as Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which opens in theaters this November. He starts filming his own solo film as the superhero later this year for an October 2018 release. What do you guys think?

    Just Cause 1&2 are lackluster games with generic stories.

    Just cause 3 is a legitimately BAD game….

    Who the… heck would license that franchise for a movie adaptation?

    This is baffling.
