Jason Momoa to Star in Netflix’s Revenge Action Film Sweet Girl


Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Justice League, Game of Thrones) will star Netflix revenge action film Sweet Girl, the streaming service announced today.

In the film, a devastated husband vows to bring justice to the people responsible for his wife’s death while protecting the only family he has left, his daughter.

“I’m excited to partner with Netflix once again,” said Momoa. “I’m putting a dream team together from Brad and Jeff to my best friend, Brian who has been my partner for over ten years. It’s a dream come true to collaborate with him and deliver his vision.”

Sweet Girl will be directed by Brian Andrew Mendoza, who will make his feature directorial debut and is reuniting with Momoa. Mendoza has previously served as the cinematographer and producer on Braven, as well as executive producer on Frontier, both starring Momoa.

Mendoza will direct from a script by Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner, with revisions by Will Staples. The producers are Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson (ASAP Entertainment), Momoa, and Mendoza. Executive producing is Martin Kistler.

“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,” said Fierson. “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. And this is the perfect vehicle for Brian to make his directorial debut.”

Momoa recently wrapped production on Dune, the feature adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel.
