We have to assume Liam Neeson was busy (avenging his family against a shadowy cabal) or else he obviously would have leaped onto a moving train to land the lead in Jason Momoa’s upcoming Netflix film Sweet Girl. According to Variety, the Aquaman actor will follow in Neeson’s footsteps (and Halle Berry’s and Jennifer Garner’s and …) to star in and executive-produce his very own parental-revenge thriller.

Momoa will portray “a husband who vows to bring justice to the people responsible for his wife’s death while also protecting his daughter.” Based on action movies these days, every Facebook parenting group should just be tips for assembling a harpoon gun and climbing up an abandoned elevator shaft in pursuit of your kid’s abductors, rather than just feeling like they are.
