WWE Studios and Anchor Bay Films have set Road To Paloma for a release in L.A. on July 11, before coming out on-demand and on DVD July 15. The film marks the directing debut of Jason Momoa, who starred in the first season of HBO’s Game Of Thrones and played the slave-turned-king in Conan The Barbarian. He stars as Wolf, a Native American on the run after avenging his mother’s murder. As he flees across the desolate American West on his motorcycle, he’ll discover that justice has a cost – Wolf’s search for redemption will reveal secrets and take him on a journey where the roads have some very unexpected turns. His wife, Lisa Bonet, also stars in a cast that also includes Wes Studi. Momoa wrote it with Robert Homer Mollohan and Jonathan Hirschbein, and Momoa co-produced with Brian Andrew Mendoza. I met Momoa at a dinner during the Sundance Film Festival held by WWE Studios’ Michael Luisi and found him to be engaging and quite serious about his directing ambitions. I was prepped for this after interviewing the Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and after asking them who did they miss most of all the cast members they killed off, both said in unison, “Boy, do we miss Momoa.” He lives in Hawaii and planned to tap that lineage for a historical-based film that took place there, and the idea was too promising to reveal here. Hope he gets to make it.
