Bautista posted a tweet saying that he wanted to work with Jason Momoa on a buddy cop style film, it seems that just days after that tweet it looks like it might be a reality.
Jason Momoa appeared on The Late Show With James Corden and confirmed that the project is actually “off to the races.”
The initial tweet read, “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.”

That was all he said, and the universe seemed to hear him as did Momoa who texted Bautista shortly afterwards to say he was on board.
Momoa told Corden, “He [Bautista] literally texted me four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film. We love each other. We are on See and Dune together.’ And I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he said, ‘Let’s do it in Hawaii.’ And I said, ‘Let’s do it. I have an idea.’ So it’s off to the races now. We’re doing it.”
Corden joked that “this is what you can do when you’re Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista.”
To which Momoa responded, “It sells itself, bro. Dave loves wearing Speedos. I love wearing board shorts. And both of us with our shirts off. He’ll be grumpy and I’ll be charming. Boom. It sells itself, bro. I have the hair. He doesn’t have hair. We cover all the demographics.”
