WWE Studios acquires rights for Jason Momoa movie
Aug 13, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
Deadline.com is reporting that WWE Studios along with Anchor Bay Films
have acquired distribution rights in North America, the United Kingdom and
Australia/New Zealand to Road To Paloma, the directorial debut of Jason
Momoa. The movie involves Momoa as a Native American who is pursued by the
FBI for taking the law into his own hands after thugs rape and kill his
mother on their reservation. The movie will be released later this year.
Momoa recently played Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game of Thrones and was also the
lead man in Conan The Barbarian. “Jason is a genuine triple threat with
his writing, directing and, of course, acting talent. He has delivered a
gritty, provocative and powerful film. We couldn’t be more excited to
introduce it to audiences through our continued collaboration with our
partners at Anchor Bay,² said WWE Studios President Michael Luisi.
