Press: “Aquaman” Comic Con Appearance

 

From Deadline:

 

Ψ  Saturday, July 21

 

Warner Bros. presentation
10:30 AM-12:30 PM, Hall H

 

Odds are with zero movie panels on Saturday night, a prime time in Hall H, Warner Bros. session will slot in there. The studios will be unveiling their full lineup this week. What we know so far is that Wonder Woman 1984‘s Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins are likely making a special appearance. Aquaman director James Wan already announced that he will drop a new trailer for the DC comic book adaptation, and Jason Mamoa and cast should be in tow. A sneak peek of Shazam! should slip through and it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary if WB shows off footage from The Lego Movie 2, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Press: Jason Momoa to Star in Apple Drama ‘See’

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The ‘Aquaman‘ star returns to series regular television following ‘Frontier‘ and ‘Game of Thrones.’

 

Jason Momoa is lining up his post-Aquaman work.

 

A month after exiting the Crow reboot, the Game of Thrones grad has been tapped to star in Apple’s drama series See.

 

See is described as an epic, world-building drama set in the future. Momoa will star in a lead role as Baba Voss, who is a fearless warrior, leader and guardian. Additional details about the eight-episode project are being kept under wraps.

 

Written by Oscar nominee Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Peaky Blinders), Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Red Sparrow) will direct the series. Knight and Lawrence will executive produce the Chernin Entertainment/Endeavor Content effort alongside the company’s Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Kristen Campo.

 

See marks Momoa’s return to series regular television following roles in The Red Road, Netflix’s Frontier and Game of Thrones, in which he memorably starred as Khal Drogo in the hit show’s first season. His small-screen credits include North Shore, Baywatch: Hawaii and Stargate Atlantis. On the feature side, the actor will next star in the title role in DC Comics’ Justice League spinoff Aquaman, which is set to bow Dec. 21. Momoa is repped by WME.

 

For Apple, Momoa’s casting comes as yet another sign that the iPhone maker is willing to spend on top talent for its roster of high-profile programming. Still to be determined is how — or when — that content will be released.

Press: EW’s Aquaman cover has a sopping wet Jason Momoa

 

EW – Ahoy there! This week’s EW cover story is on the highly anticipated stand-alone Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa, who gives us one of our most intense (and soaking wet) cover photos ever. Below you’ll find Momoa’s cover plus a first-look cover revealing his costars Amber Heard (as Mera) and Nicole Kidman (as Queen Atlanna).

 

Aquaman is Warner Bros. and DC’s biggest swing yet, betting huge on a character who was mocked in pop culture for decades. Tapping hulking Game of Thrones star Momoa to introduce a fresh take on the half-Atlantean, half-human Arthur Curry across two previous superhero ensemble films was merely the first step. The next was tapping acclaimed director James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Furious 7) to deliver a fantasy film coming Dec. 21 that’s unlike any we’ve seen before.

 

“The water world my movie takes place in is so separate and so far apart from previous DC movies it’s like I’m making my own sci-fi fantasy film,” Wan says. “This is a whole new underwater world nobody has seen before in live action.”

 

There are Atlanteans riding great white sharks, giant octopi, seven different underwater kingdoms, trench-dwelling cannibals, and even sea dragons (Wan’s fearsome take on the oft-mocked image of Aquaman riding a seahorse in the Super Friends cartoons).

 

Yet the film’s biggest surprise might be Momoa, who gives a humor-filled performance that finally brings the actor’s actual larger-than-life personality to the big screen. “Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa,” producer Peter Safran declares. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”

 

This week’s issue dives into the world of Atlantis with the behind-the-scenes story of Momoa’s casting, interviews with Wan and the cast, and exclusive photos revealing the underwater world.

 

To read more on Aquaman, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands Friday, or  buy it here now; you can also get the cover with Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, and Nicole Kidman online or at Barnes & Noble. Don’t forget to subscribe for more exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW.

 


 

I’ve added new photos to the gallery including one new exclusive behind the scenes photo and three new exclusive movie stills.

Press: ‘The Crow’ Remake Grounded Again: Jason Momoa & Director Corin Hardy Exit

Sorry for the late announcement on this! I’m running behind on updates.

 

DEADLINE – The Crow has seen its wings clipped yet again. Sources tell me Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy formally withdrew from the film this morning. This after Sony was close to exiting as the film’s worldwide distributor. I’m told this has to do with creative and financial differences with Samuel Hadida, whose Davis Films holds underlying rights and who was financing the film. Production was gearing up to start within the next five weeks in Budapest, and the picture was in full pre-production with Hardy presiding.

 

Sony Pictures announced last September that it had picked up the film for worldwide distribution, and announced an October 11, 2019 release date. Insiders said that deal hasn’t closed. My sources said Hadida’s inability to close a deal with Sony left the studio in exit mode, and that directly precipitated the exits of the filmmaker and star.
