Jason Momoa is, without a doubt, a very busy man. While he is still undoubtedly riding high from this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con where the stunning first trailer for Aquaman finally made its debut, Momoa took to his Instagram account to announce what appears to be his next project.
Momoa doesn’t exactly give a ton of details as to what the film will be, but he does say that he is on tap to direct the project with his new partners Jeanie Buss, co-owner of the LA Lakers, and Michael Acierno set to produce. He posted, “It’s official @jeaniebuss@michaelacierno88 are producing my next film I’m set to direct. Can’t wait to share more. Big mahalos to my partners. We are @on_the_roam.”
According to their LinkedIn page, On the Roam is described as, “an innovative production company specializing in un-scripted storytelling through cinematic technique. Roam is a joint venture between Ignition Creative, the entertainment industry’s leading creative studio and Pride of Gypsies, a boutique production company formed by actor/director Jason Momoa.”
This wouldn’t be Momoa’s first run in the director’s chair. He previously directed and starred in the 2014 film Road to Paloma. We can’t wait to see what Momoa puts together in this new project!

Momoa, of course, can next be seen in the highly-anticipated DC and Warner Bros. film Aquaman in which he plays the titular character. Directed by James Wan, the film also stars Amber Heard (as Mera), Patrick Wilson (as the villainous Orm/Ocean Master), Temuera Morrison (as Tom Curry), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (as Black Manta), Nicole Kidman (as Queen Atlanna), Dolph Lundgren (as King Nereus) and Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe (as Nuidis Vulko).
Aquaman will splash down into theaters on December 21, 2018.
