Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista’s new movie started life as an idea on Twitter.
Back in August, Bautista tweeted out an idea for a film that he wanted to make with Momoa and his proposal instantly caught the attention of studio bosses.
“Just going to throw this out into the atmosphere and see what happens. Here we go… Me and Momoa in a Lethal Weapon type buddy cop movie directed by David Leitch. Ok! There it is. Now we wait,” he penned in the Aug. 19 post.
According to Deadline, the duo began pitching the project, with author Jonathan Tropper attached as a writer, this week and MGM is frontrunner to secure the title.
The publication reported the actors will “play brothers in a Lethal Weapon-esque buddy cop comedy likely to shoot in Hawaii.”
It is expected to shoot in 2023 and no director is attached yet.
