Jason Momoa to star in a Just Cause movie adaptation


Just Cause, the Square Enix video game, is heading to the big screen. Jason Momoa (Frontier, Aquaman) is set to star in the film, which will be directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas). John Collee (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) wrote the screenplay.

Momoa and Peyton have previously worked together before on Netflix’s Frontier.

The story follows Rico Rodriguez (Momoa) who is an operative for an organization known as the Agency. The plot of the movie is under wraps but it is expected to deal in some way with Rico’s crisis of conscience while on a mission.

Producing will be 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.

I can see Just Cause making a good movie, but the script will have to be really tight. If not, it runs the risk of ending up like the game, lots of explosions and shooting just for the sake it.

How do you feel about Momoa as Rico?
