Box office heavyweights and good friends Dwayne Johnson and Jason Momoa want to make a movie together, Momoa says in a new interview with Jimmy Fallon.
Two of Hollywood’s biggest names – Dwayne johnson and Jason momoa, want to make a movie together. Both stars are known for their action films, with Momoa having gained considerable fame for his portrayal of Aquaman. As for Johnson, the 49-year-old former professional wrestler dominated Forbes magazine’s list of the highest paid actors over the past two years and he’s arguably best known for the Jumanji franchise.
Although the two actors have been friends for around 20 years, their paths have yet to cross to any major degree on the big screen. Johnson is currently preparing for the exit of the Disney theme park ride turned into an action-adventure tale, Jungle cruise this summer. If this film finds a warm reception, it will likely be heavily invested in helping to make it a franchise. You’d think this might limit Johnson’s ability to find the time to kick off a project with Momoa, but a quick glance at Johnson’s list of upcoming projects clearly shows that he’s good at multitasking. Momoa’s career may not be Johnson’s, but that doesn’t mean his talents couldn’t perfectly complement any project the two friends decide to take on.

Seeing Johnson and Momoa together in a movie might seem like wishful thinking at this point, but the reality of the situation is that the two ultimately want to do a project together. During an interview on Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon YouTube channel Momoa explained that not only have the two been close for decades, thanks to a mutual friend in Momoa’s native Hawaii, but they also wanted to work on a movie together. Admit that Johnson is “much busier“than it is, Momoa said:
We tried to get together and make a movie together, it’s just he’s way busier than me and I’m pretty busy right now, so one of these days we’re gonna get together and do something. .
Sadly, Momoa hasn’t really been able to develop that much, as it wasn’t long before Fallon gushed over the prospect that the two stars could work together. There’s no denying that any movie involving Johnson and Momoa will have instant appeal to audiences around the world, but what kind of project the two could team up on remains a mystery. Perhaps then, the real reason the two haven’t collaborated on any movies to date is also due to the need to find something to suit both of them. Johnson has previously collaborated with comedian Kevin Hart and the two have a definite onscreen comedic chemistry. As for Momoa, however, his skills tend to rely on muscle, which is perhaps too similar to Johnson.
At the same time, regardless of the two Dwayne johnson and Jason momoa end up collaborating on cannot be short of action. The two stars have racked up considerable action credit on the big screen over the years, and for them to appear in a film that doesn’t involve at least some degree of carnage is virtually unthinkable. The bottom line here is that it might be a while before we see Johnson and Momoa together on screen, but when that happens fans are up for something pretty special.
