July 29 (UPI) -- Game of Thrones and Aquaman actor Jason Momoa has signed on to star in the movie, Sweet Girl, Netflix announced on Monday.
Momoa will play a man who "vows to bring justice to the people responsible for his wife's death while protecting the only family he has left, his daughter," a press release from the streaming service said.
The project will mark the feature directorial debut of Brian Andrew Mendoza.
Mendoza previously worked as cinematographer-producer on Braven and as an executive producer on Frontier -- both Netflix shows starring Momoa.
The producing team of Sweet Girl will also include Brad Peyton and Jeff Fierson.
"I'm excited to partner with Netflix once again," Momoa said in a statement. "I'm putting a dream team together from Brad and Jeff to my best friend, Brian, who has been my partner for over 10 years. It's a dream come true to collaborate with him and deliver his vision."
