Actor Jason Momoa (“Conan the Barbarian,” “Game of Thrones”) is set to direct and star in the fighting drama feature “Kane” for TF1.
Momoa will play an alcoholic former boxer who turns to Detroit’s illegal fighting circuit to earn money to pay for his ex-wife’s medical treatment.
Once in the lucrative underground fighting scene, he faces old demons and a merciless rival from his past.
Robert Homer Mollohan wrote the script, while Momoa, Steven Hoban and Brian Andrew Mendoza are producing. Shooting aims to begin in January in Detroit.
