‘Sweet Girl’ Trailer: Jason Momoa Takes On Big Pharma in Netflix Action Movie

Netflix

Take a look at the trailer that Netflix has unveiled for Sweet Girl, an upcoming action-thriller starring and produced by Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Game of Thrones).

Momoa plays Ray Cooper, a devoted family man whose life takes a turn when his wife is diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, the potentially live-saving drug she needs is pulled by the pharmaceutical company and she passes away. Devastated and furious, he vows to take on those responsible for his wife’s death while protecting the only family he has left, his daughter (Isabel Merced, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Instant Family).

The badass-father-out-for-revenge tale is certainly familiar, although Sweet Girl looks to be throwing a few different ingredients into the mix by having the daughter getting in on the action and including a big real-world issue like big pharma corruption. Hopefully the drama and action are balanced well. At the very least, we have Momoa in badass mode.

The film marks the feature directorial debut for Brian Andrew Mendoza, a longtime Momoa collaborator having produced Frontier, Braven and Road to Paloma. The script comes from Philip Eisner (Event Horizon), Gregg Hurwitz (The Book of Henry) and Will Staples (Without Remorse).

Sweet Girl, also starring Amy Brenneman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Raza Jaffrey, Lex Scott Davis, and Michael Raymond-James, will be streaming on Netflix from August 20th.
