A few days after Dave Bautista expressed interest in making a “buddy cop movie” with Jason Momoa via Twitter, Aquaman’s star confirmed the news on Monday, while appearing on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
“We’re going to just throw it out there and see what happens. Here’s Momoa and me in a buddy cop movie of the Lethal Weapon variety directed by David Leitch. Okay! It is there. We wait.”
Turns out, Bautista didn’t have to wait very long — Momoa confirmed he was on board via text soon after. “He literally texted me four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film. We are inseparable. Momoa shared that they are together on See and Dune. “And I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he replied, Let’s go to Hawaii.’ I agreed. It’s happening. It’s happening.”
Corden pointed out that the actors, who are both top-shelf, were able to decide to create a movie by themselves. He laughed and said, “This is what you do when you are Jason Momoa or Dave Bautista.”
“Speedos are a favorite of Dave. Board shorts are my favorite thing. Both of us wearing our shirts down. He’ll be grummy, and I’ll charm him. Boom. Boom. It’s my hair. He doesn’t have any hair. We cover all the demographics.”
