Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers will be visited by none other than Aquaman himself, actor Jason Momoa, when the Netflix feature thriller, “Sweet Girl” begins shooting this fall.
Momoa, best known for his roles as DC Comics’ underwater hero and as Khal Drogo on “Game of Thrones,” will star as a man out for revenge after his wife is killed. He also is sworn to protect his daughter.
Netflix has built a presence here. The streaming giant created a large set for the 2020 series “I Am Not Okay With This” this past summer in Warrendale, and shot two seasons of its “Mindhunter” drama series around Pittsburgh.
Brian Andrew Mendoza, who makes his directorial debut with “Sweet Girl,” was cinematographer for the 2018 feature film “Braven” and executive produced “Frontier,” a Discovery Canada series for Netflix. Momoa starred in both.
