The movie adaptation of Square Enix's Just Cause has found its hero, and it's Game Of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa. He'll play the Agency's Rico Rodriguez.

Variety reported the news and added that Brad Peyton will direct. Peyton also directed disaster movie San Andreas and two episodes of Netflix's Frontier, which stars Momoa. The script for Just Cause has been adapted by John Collee who penned the screenplay for Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.

Movie studios are betting big on video game movies right now. Adaptations of Uncharted, Sleeping Dogs, The Division and a rebooted Tomb Raider are just handful in the works, with more revealed every week.
