Along with the Harrison Ford news today, Latino Review has also announced that former “Game of Thrones” and “Conan the Barbarian” star Jason Momoa has also scored a plum role in another space-set epic.
Momoa, currently in theaters with “Bullet to the Head,” flew out to London to screen test on Wednesday for Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
Said screen test apparently went so well that Marvel offered him the part and his reps are now in negotiations. Momoa reportedly beat out Isiah Mustafa, Dave Bautista, and Brian Patrick for the role.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit later confirmed that Momoa did test for the role, but there is NO offer at this time.
Director James Gunn just commenced pre-production in London.
