JUST CAUSE: Jason Momoa To Headline Video Game Adaptation

Just Cause Video Game

Jason Momoa Cast In Lead Role For Just Cause Movie

Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa is set to star as Rico Rodriguez in Brad Peyton‘s big screen adaptation of Just Cause.

In addition to his role as Khal Drogo on the HBO fantasy series, Momoa is also known for portraying Ronon Dex on Stargate Atlantis. More recently, however, he has come to be known as the actor who portrays Aquaman in Warner BrosDC Expanded Universe, appearing as the hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and slated to carry a solo film in 2018.

Based on the video game series of the same name, the movie is said to borrow the most inspiration from the third and most recent iteration of the series, Just Cause 3. With this in mind, it doesn’t hurt to know what the third game is about, as, the source of this story, so helpfully shares:

“The Mediterranean republic of Medici is suffering under the brutal control of General Di Ravello, a dictator with an insatiable appetite for power. Enter Rico Rodriguez, a man on a mission to destroy the General’s hold on power by any means necessary. With over 400 square miles of complete freedom from sky to seabed and a huge arsenal of weaponry, gadgets and vehicles, prepare to unleash chaos in the most creative and explosive ways you can imagine.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
