Dave Bautista says he and Jason Momoa have a 'Lethal Weapon' style action comedy coming next year
| Last updated
Dave Bautista has teamed up with Jason Momoa for a 'Lethal Weapon' style action comedy which sounds brilliant.
The two Hollywood superstars were able to turn their comedy idea into a reality after selling the film to MGM back in 2021.
Bautista previously teased the idea on social media, writing: "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 also confirmed the rumours in that same year on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
"Dave loves wearing Speedos, I love wearing board shorts, and both of us with our shirts off [in a] buddy cop film, he'll be grumpy and I'll be charming. Boom. It sells itself, bro," the Aquaman star said.
"I've got the hair, he doesn't have hair. We cover all the demographics."
The muscular duo co-starred in See and Dune while seemingly building up a bit of a friendship in the process.
In a recent interview with Insider, the former WWE superstar thinks the film is 'going to be a hit'.
"My schedule is kind of filling in, and I think he's got Minecraft, which is going to go this year and take up most of the year," Bautista explained.
"So now we are looking at early 2024.
"But we have a great script.
"MGM is still dedicated to doing this film.
"Me and Jason together, I think it's going to be a hit."
Earlier this week, the wrestler-turned-actor asked himself if he's 'unattractive' after never being asked to do a romcom.
"I'm a little rough around the edges," Bautista admitted to Page Six.
"But I always, you know, I look in the mirror, and I say, I ask myself, 'Am I that unattractive? Is there something that unappealing about me that excludes me from these parts?'
"I don't know. It's just never come my way. I've never had an offer to do a rom-com. I still have high hopes. I'll just keep searching."
It just shows that being strong on the outside doesn't mean you're made of steel on the inside.
Although I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of the man who used to run riot in professional wrestling with his iconic finisher 'The Batista Bomb'.
