Jason Momoa, though still kicking butt and taking names in his next action-adventure thriller, will, in lieu of battling epic fantasy foes like in “Aquaman” or “Game of Thrones,” be getting his hands dirty in a grounded, gritty Netflix film about a husband poised for revenge at the pharmaceutical company that pulled his wife’s life-saving cure from the market to greedily increase profits.
“Sweet Girl” sees Momoa playing Ray Copper — he stars alongside Adria Arjona, Copper’s wife who dies of cancer and is the catalyst that triggers Momoa to decide to obtain his retribution. Eventually, Ray’s search for the truth leads to a deadly encounter that puts him and his daughter Rachel (Isabela Merced) in harm’s way. After which, Ray’s mission turns into a quest for vengeance to protect the only family he has left.
Brian Andrew Mendoza is in the director’s chair here, and the cast also includes Justin Bartha, Amy Brenneman and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo.
The film will arrive on Netflix on August 20, but in the meantime, be sure to check out the film’s trailer above!
