In the upcoming Netflix movie, Jason Momoa stars as a devoted father who decides to fight big pharma. Are you ready for an action-packed movie?
With a different antagonist than usual, Sweet Girl is the new Netflix action movie that promises to take Jason Momoa to extremes to avenge his wife’s death and protect his daughter.
Scripted by Gregg Hurwitz and Philip Eisner, Sweet Girl premieres on August 20 on the streaming platform, and the first trailer promises plenty of action and fights. This film marks the directorial debut of Brian Andrew Mendoza, who has done more producer work, including on Momoa projects like Frontier and Braven.
Ray Cooper, a man devoted to his family, vows to bring justice to the pharmaceutical company responsible for taking a potentially life-saving drug off the market just before his wife (Adria Arjona) dies of cancer. But when his quest for the truth results in a deadly encounter that puts Ray and his daughter, Rachel (Isabela Merced), in danger, Ray’s mission turns into a quest for revenge to protect the only family he has left.
Jason Momoa stars in the film and is joined by Justin Bartha (“National Treasure”), Amy Brenneman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Raza Jaffrey, Lex Scott Davis, and Michael Raymond-James (“True Blood”), as well as Isabela Merced (“Transformers: The Last Knight”).
The film marks the actor’s Netflix debut and his return after Aquaman. Recall that the actor appeared in Dune, which won’t premiere until late 2021, and has been starring in See, the Apple Tv+ series that was recently renewed.
