Jason Momoa was tipped to break out with Conan The Barbarian, but that unfortunately didn’t happen. However maybe he’ll have more luck with Wolves, as THR reports he’s in talks to play the villain in the film, which will makr the directorial debut of screenwriter David Hayter (X-Men).
The first news on the project emerged earlier this month, when Lucas Till signed on for the lead role. The movie is about a young man who transforms into a werewolf after being falsely accused of committing his parents’ murder. He comes across a small town called Lupine Ridge, which holds the secrets of his real identity. No details are known for Jason Momoa’s villainous character.
David Hayter is directing from his own original screenplay, with filming set to begin this autumn in Toronto.
