Momoa’s Aquaman Gets Pics, Aussie Shoot Details

Having played the role in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” earlier this year when the film was in production, actor Jason Momoa will soon reprise the part of Aquaman in the James Wan-directed solo movie based on the DC Comics hero.

Today comes the official word that production on “Aquaman” will take place at the Village Roadshow Studios in Surfer’s Paradise, Australia during the first half of 2017 according to THR.

Australian arts minister Mitch Fifield said “Aquaman” will create over 1,000 jobs and spend a total of USD$111 million. The federal government secured the shoot by providing a one-off production grant of USD$16.32 million.

“Aquaman” follows the completed “Thor: Ragnarok” which shot there this year, and the “Pacific Rim” sequel which will return to the studios to shoot on location in early 2017.

Also new behind-the-scenes images of Momoa filming his “Justice Laague” scenes in character have now appeared online. The pics come from Brian Andrew Mendoza’s documentary short “Canvas of My Life” which is described as “intimate portrait of Jason Momoa’s life”.
