Game of Thrones Star Jason Momoa Will Be In The Just Cause Movie
Today we discovered Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa will play the lead in Square Enix’s upcoming Just Cause movie. He will portray the lead character Rico Rodriguez. Variety magazine also reports that Brad Peyton will direct the movie. Momoa stars in the Netflix series Frontier, which is directed by Peyton. He’s also directing the Rampage video game movie.
Specifics regarding the plot of the Just Cause movie remain unclear, although producer Adrien Askarieh said in 2015 that it would be inspired by Just Cause 3.
Back in 2015, our man Doug Mercer reviewed the game and said: “Yes, there certainly are some problems with Just Cause 3 that are irritating and off putting. But there’s also a lot that this game has going for it. The scenery is quite stunning as the island life is beautifully rendered. There’s so very much to do in the game that you could spend entire sessions simply travelling the map and entire other ones just hunting down secrets and easter eggs. Also, the core of the game itself is so deliciously violence filled with over the top action that it would make even the Expendables look like gritty realism. For an action movie junkie like me, if a movie doesn’t embrace itself for what it is and give me an absurdly over the top, scenery chewing, nonsensical, ‘so bad it’s good’ product, it simply falls into the bad category. Just Cause 3 doesn’t pull any punches. You can use a tank to shoot a helicopter down or tether a soldier to a boat as it tries to evade your machine gun fire. No matter how you play it, it’s going to deliver fun in droves. For that, I can truly respect the game and thoroughly enjoy my time in Medici.”
