What happens with two box office behemoths activate their Wonder Twin powers and put their muscles together for a great idea? We’re about to find out because Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista are about to join forces for a buddy cop film.
How did this stroke of genius come about? Well, according to Momoa, it all started when he got a text from Bautista saying they should work together.
“He literally texted me four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film. We love each other. We are on See and Dune together.’ And I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he said, ‘Let’s do it in Hawaii.’ And I said, ‘Let’s do it. I have an idea.’ So it’s off to the races now. We’re doing it,” Momoa told James Corden while guesting on The Late Late Show.
Corden was a bit thrown by how easy it was for the duo to turn a simple exchange into a potential film project. Then again, this is Momoa and Bautista we’re talking about. Both actors are absolute powerhouses in Hollywood right now, and their existing chemistry has already served them well for projects like Dune and See.
“It sells itself, bro,” Momoa said. “Dave loves wearing Speedos. I love wearing board shorts. And both of us with our shirts off. He’ll be grumpy and I’ll be charming. Boom. It sells itself, bro. I have the hair. He doesn’t have hair. We cover all the demographics.”
