Is Jason Momoa And Dave Bautista's Buddy Cop Movie Actually Happening?

Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista are two of the biggest action stars in the world. Both have delighted audiences with their superhero chops — Momoa as Aquaman in the DCEU and Bautista as Drax the Destroyer in the MCU, respectively. The actors have a number of other high-profile roles under their collective belts, too, including Bautista in Zack Snyder's "Army of the Dead," and Momoa in the recent Netflix hit "Sweet Girl." Momoa and Bautista are co-stars, too, appearing in the dystopian Apple+ series "See," and notably, the hotly anticipated "Dune" remake.

The actors' star power is remarkable, and while thy've worked together, they've never been co-leads of a project. However, the pair have been on social media and the late-night circuit talking about how keen they'd be to star in a buddy cop movie together. We'd be equally as excited to see such a fantastic idea come to life. But is it really happening?

Yes, we will be getting a Dave Baustista and Jason Momoa buddy cop film

Never fear, dedicated fans: the Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista buddy cop movie is in the works. On August 19, Bautista tweeted, "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." It turns out Bautista was doing more than just manifesting. Appearing on The Late Late Show, Momoa told host James Corden, "We're doing it" (via ComicBook.com). Momoa elaborated, sharing his exchange with Baustista, "He literally texted me four days ago, going, 'We need to do a buddy cop film.' We love each other. 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."

Getting a film into production takes more than just a text exchange, but with the star power (and box office draw) of Momoa and Baustista, we have no doubt the pair will find a studio eager to throw cash at this project — and we will be first in line at the theater come opening day.
