Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista have been cast as co-stars in an upcoming comedy action film. The movie will be directed by Angel Manuel Soto, who previously worked on Blue Beetle. The deals for the two actors were finalized before the start of the acting union strikes and the script was written prior to the writers' strikes. Both the writer and actors' strikes began in June and July respectively.

Although plot details about the new comedy are being kept under wraps, it is expected to be a "buddy action comedy." This exciting collaboration between Momoa and Bautista comes almost two years after Bautista tweeted his idea of the pair starring in a "buddy cop" movie together.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy star shared his idea on Twitter, saying, "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."

Momoa and Bautista first met while working together on the sci-fi action series See, and they also appeared alongside each other in the 2021 film Dune. Momoa echoed Bautista's sentiment during an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden, saying, "We love each other, you know, obviously we met on See, we're on Dune together, so I said 'absolutely.' It sells itself. Dave loves wearing speedos. I love wearing board shorts. Both of us with our shirts off. Buddy cop film. He'll be grumpy, I'll be charming. Boom. It sells itself."

Although Bautista's wish for director David Leitch didn't come true, Angel Manuel Soto is no stranger to success, as he recently directed the box office hit Blue Beetle. The film is groundbreaking as it is the first live-action studio superhero movie to star and be created by Latinos in the industry.

The Wrecking Crew, led by director Angel Manuel Soto, is set to be an exciting addition to the comedy action genre. Fans of Momoa and Bautista can look forward to seeing these two talented actors team up for a movie that promises to deliver humor and action-packed entertainment.
