Jason Momoa to make directorial debut

Actor Jason Momoa is set to make his directorial debut with a movie about an alcoholic former boxer. The Game of Thones hunk will helm, produce and star in Kane and he is hoping to shoot the drama in the recently-bankrupt Detroit, Michigan in 2014.
A statement from Momoa reads, “I really wanted to make an action movie with heart and set it in Detroit. The city used to symbolize much of what was grand and noble about America but then lost it all to economic decline and urban decay.
“This parallels the story of Kane Malu, a man who is down but not yet out. Kane is the story of a phoenix rising from the ashes.”
