Video game to movie adaptations may not have a great reputation, but Hollywood can’t give up on the idea that their might be a lot of money to be made from them. One of the latest that’s in the work, is a movie version of Just Cause.
Deadline reports that Jason Momoa is set to star in the film, with Brad Peyton directing. Game Of Thrones star Momoa has been on on the verge of breaking massively for quite a while, and the makers of Just Cause will be hoping that the fact he is soon to be seen as Aquaman will make him an even bigger name.
Peyton meanwhile is coming off two movie that made far more money that most people realise, Journey 2 and San Andreas. Next up he’s helming another videogame inspired film, Rampage, which will reunite him with Dwayne Johnson. The movie will come before Just Cause.
The Just Cause movie, ‘like the game, follows Rico Rodriguez (Momoa) who is an operative for an organization known as the Agency. The plot of the movie is under wraps but it is expected to deal in some way with Rico’s crisis of conscience while on a mission.’
