Jason Momoa To Star In A 'Just Cause' Movie As Rico Rodriguez

Just Cause is a video game that was made famous in 2006 thanks to its outlandish features. Players were able to grapple hook onto a plane and then jump onto moving vehicles and more. Well it seems as if Hollywood is intrigued by this concept as a movie based on the video game is currently in production.

As reported by Deadline, Jason Momoa has been tipped to play the main character named Rico Rodriguez. It's an interesting choice since the main character is Hispanic while Momoa is a Hawaiian with some Native American descent. I guess he was chosen thanks to his good looks and Box Office appeal. After all, Momoa starred in Game of Thrones and will be even more famous as Aquaman in the Justice League movie later this year.

It has also been reported that Brad Peyton will be directing the Just Cause movie. Peyton's last film was San Andreas which grossed $473.9 million at the Box Office. There is a chance this movie could be just as successful since the video game series has sold millions of copies. Just Cause 3 is the latest in the franchise and that came out in 2015.

Peyton is also currently working on another video game movie called Rampage starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. It's possible Just Cause won't be filming anytime soon since both Peyton and Momoa are busy working on other projects. Still, it's interesting that they have made an announcement on a feature film.

The plot of the film is being kept under wraps, but it's expected to be similar to the video games. Hopefully the film is able to replicate the crazy stunts and action sequences that you can do in the video games. The movie should be fun if they manage to stay true to the video games. Most video game movies fail because they don't follow the essence of the source material.
