Sweet Girl sees Jason Momoa playing a husband who vows to bring justice to those responsible for his wife’s death while also trying to protect the only family he has left…his daughter. The film is directed by Brian Andrew Mendoza in his feature directorial debut from a script written by Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner, with current revisions by Will Staples. Mendoza and Momoa previously worked together on 2018’s Braven and Netflix’s Frontier series.
Joining Momoa are Isabela Merced (Transformers: The Last Knight), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (6 Underground), Amy Brenneman, Adria Arjona (6 Underground), Raza Jaffrey (Homeland), Justin Bartha (National Treasure), Lex Scott Davis (The First Purge), and Michael Raymond-James (True Blood).
Sweet Girl is produced by Momoa, Brad Peyton, and Jeff Fierson of ASAP Entertainment, with Martin Kistler serving as an executive producer.
Momoa is currently preparing for the impending start of production for James Wan’s upcoming Aquaman sequel, which is set for a 2022 release. He will also next be seen in Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated film adaptation of Dune, which will be led by Timothee Chalamet.
