Warner Bros Lands Upcoming Action Murder Mystery ‘The Executioner’ Starring Jason Momoa

According to the reports, there was a fairly intense bidding war in Hollywood recently for Jason Momoa’s upcoming murder mystery film, The Executioner.

We don’t know how high the bidding war got, but we are hearing that Warner Bros won the project by offering a lucrative deal.

The script for the film was written by Kaz and Ryan Firpo, the writing duo behind Eternals, the 2021 superhero film starring Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chan, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek.

Not much is known about The Executioner, but it’s being described as a “fun action murder mystery” that is in the spirit of Knives Out meets The Lord of the Rings, which sounds pretty silly, but that’s Hollywood for you.

No director has been attached yet, but we’re assuming that will be the next step for the studio. And then they’ll likely build out the cast around Momoa.

Murder mystery films are hot right now, thanks in large part to the success of Knives Out. Hollywood is trying to ride the wave before it washes out.

Jason Momoa In Talks To Star In Upcoming Live-Action ‘Minecraft’ Movie

Well, you knew it was coming. Hollywood is developing a live-action movie based on the ridiculously popular Minecraft video game franchise.

It’s the best-selling game of all time with more than 238 million copies sold since its release in 2011. Hollywood wants a piece of that pie, and they’re reportedly recruiting Jason Momoa to help them do it.

The ‘Dune‘ actor is currently deep in talks to join the adaptation. Nothing has been signed, so it’s not official, but Warner Bros. wants him to lead the project.

Minecraft is a first-person survival game developed and published by Mojang Studios that spans multiple platforms. The first installment in the franchise debuted in November 2011, with the latest, Minecraft Dungeons, being unveiled in May 2020.

We don’t know much about this movie’s plot. Insiders aren’t giving out much information, but we do know Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) is set to direct a script from Chris Bowman and Hubbell Palmer.

In the meantime, you can catch Momoa in the upcoming Aquaman film, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, on March 17, 2023.

Insiders Say Jason Momoa Is Latest Addition To ‘Fast And Furious 10’ Cast

It looks like the family is getting bigger. Sources claim Jason Momoa is deep in talks to join the upcoming 10th installment in the Fast & Furious franchise.

Some sources say it’s a done deal, while others say negotiations are still taking place, but either way it looks likely that the 42-year-old will be joining the cast.

Some suggest he’ll be playing a villainous role, but of course it’s all just speculation at the moment. The report is still fresh.

We do know that Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Ludacris are expected to return. We also know Dwayne Johnson has no plans to return, even after Diesel tried to guilt trip him on social media.

Justin Lin is returning to direct. He has directed five films in the franchise, including the fourth film back in 2009, which made over $360 million at the worldwide box office.

Plot details for this 10th installment are unknown at this time, but we’re assuming cars will be jumping out of helicopters and Diesel’s character will say the word “family” at least five times.

We’ll keep you posted.

Jason Momoa And Dave Bautista’s Buddy Cop Movie Is Being Developed With MGM

MGM is about to close a deal for an untitled buddy comedy action pitch, which will star Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista. Apparently, there was a bidding war and MGM has come out on top.

The two stars pitched the movie all over town this past week and apparently impressed a lot of people.

The film came from an original idea from Momoa, Bautista and Tropper. The studio will develop it, but the principals have made rich deals that kick in when the picture goes into production. Jeff Fierson is producing.

As mentioned above, Jonathan Tropper wrote the script. He’s perhaps best known for writing the New York Times bestselling novel, This Is Where I Leave You. He also wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation, which starred Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda and Adam Driver.

So what is this buddy action comedy about?

Essentially, the pitch calls for the duo to play brothers in a Lethal Weapon-esque buddy cop comedy likely to shoot in Hawaii.

Bautista got the ball rolling on this film by tweeting out the following back in August…

Just going to throw this out into the atmosphere and see what happens. Here we go…Me and Momoa in a Lethal Weapon type buddy cop movie directed by David Leitch. Ok! There it is. Now we wait.

Damn. Is it really that easy? Because I got some ideas too.

Extended Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Has Been Released, Check Out The Action Inside!

Thanks to the New York Comic Con, we are getting an extended look at the upcoming ‘Aquaman‘ film starring Jason Momoa.

This trailer is five minutes long, which means if you’re one of those people who want to enter movies with a clear mind, you should probably avoid clicking play. In fact, just press the back button on your browser and find another article to read on our site.

The Verge explains DC is trying to go with a more lighthearted approach with this movie…

“The overall vibe of Aquaman seems to indicate that DC is aiming for a more lighthearted tone compared to its dreary and dark predecessors. Momoa and Heard’s banter, in particular, shows off an almost unheard-of sense of humor for the series. Add in director James Wan’s eye for action scenes (he previously directed Furious 7), and it’s possible that Aquaman may join Wonder Woman in escaping the long shadow cast by years of lackluster DC films.”

In addition to Momoa, Aquaman stars Nicole Kidman, Amber Heard and Patrick Wilson. It’s scheduled to hit theaters December 21, 2018.

Movie Review: Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice – After the Opening, it all Goes Downhill.


God, the comic geeks must have spooged themselves when they learned that finally, all their ‘batman v superman’ arguments were coming to the movies. I never got that. To me Batman Versus Superman is the same as the ratio of ghosts to snork berries; nonexistent.  But, with the intent of becoming the wet dreams of 13-year-old boys everywhere, director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer put this together.

And now it’s time for a rant. How many times have I said “too many Superman movies”? How many times have I said “too many Batman movies?” So what do they do? Put them together. And, as if they’re making fun of me, they stick Ben Affleck in the lead.

That’s it. I quit. <typing stops abruptly, sound of footsteps, door slams>

Ok, not really. But that’s the kind of abrupt change of attitude you can expect from this newest DC adaptation. Dawn of Justice peaks in its opening sequence, a slow-motion, Sucker Punch-esque dispatching of the Batman origin story in three minutes or less, which sets the stage for the introduction of an older, broken, kinda fat Batman (Ben Affleck), who engages in increasingly violent and futile attempts to clean up Gotham City. The rest of the introductory character work sees Superman (Henry Cavill) grappling with public criticism over his actions in his last cinematic outing and the young Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) attempting to build a weapon capable of stopping Superman.


After the opening, it all goes downhill. I have to admit; I didn’t hate Ben Affleck in this. He makes a passable Batman. Henry Cavill came across better as Clark Kent. Jesse Eisenberg was almost embarrassing as Lex Luthor. It felt like he was doing an impression of Heath Ledger playing the Joker. Watching Jesse Eisenberg, I wasn’t entirely sure if he’d ever heard of Superman.

Now me, I’m not a person who has a big problem with violence. Heck, I love everything by Quentin Tarantino and he’s turned violence into an art form. But this movie seemed to be rushed in order to get to the next violent fight scene. The characters become completely interchangeable and really, you stop caring about who wins. The problem is there really are no stakes. This is such an obvious cash grab; we know that they’d never kill off anything they can franchise. Hell, if a spork tested well with a focus group, they’d give it a franchise. And I’d watch the Adventures of Sporky just like everyone else.


It’s not worth the watch, but it’s inevitable. It’s one of those bad blockbusters that everyone will go to, but eventually forget until the next one gets spit out by the studio.  They’re raking in garbage bags of money and we’re watching what they tell us to.

I’d say if it’s a choice between this and a Trump rally, I’d go with the Trump Rally. While the Trump Rally will be violent, at least Ben Affleck won’t be there.

Keanu Reeves And Jim Carrey Joining Cannibal Love Story ‘The Bad Batch’

We are not sure if anybody saw this coming. Two huge stars just joined the cast of Ana Lily Amirpour’s cannibal love story, The Bad Batch. We knew the unique film had already added Jason Momoa last month, and we figured he would be leading the cast, wrongly assuming he would be surrounded with several newcomers.

But thanks to a report from TheWrap, we have learned that Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves and Suki Waterhouse will be joining the film. Those are some huge names, and it’s honestly made us more excited about this movie. It’s a post-apocalyptic story set in a Texas wasteland where a group of cannibals reside. And yes, The Bad Batch has been described as a love story between cannibal Miami Man (Momoa) and his food.

Waterhouse will be playing the female lead Arlen, Reeves will be playing The Dream and Carrey landed a character named The Hermit.

We don’t know any details surrounding their characters, but hopefully Carrey is able to display the wonderful acting skills we saw in Man on the Moon, The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

As of right now, no more information has been released. We don’t know when filming will begin, we don’t even know if this movie will make it inside theaters; however, we will do our best to keep you updated. It certainly sounds like an interesting project.
