It might be hard to imagine the King of Atlantis playing a man-made out of snow, but it looks like Aquaman star Jason Momoa is going to provide the voice of Frosty the Snowman in an upcoming live-action movie by Warner Brothers.
According to a report by Deadline, Warner Brothers and Stampede Ventures are developing a live-action winter movie called Frosty the Snowman, and it looks like Momoa is set to voice the iconic man of snow.
It might seem odd given the deep baritones of the Game of Thrones and Aquaman star, but it seems like Warner Brothers may have a different take on the iconic character.
Elf writer David Berenbaum us working on the script for Frosty the Snowman, and in an interview with the entertainment news outlet, the scriptwriter says it makes sense that Warner Brothers hire Momoa for the project.
“From his role as a fearsome count in a land of ice and fire to the oceanic success we all had with Aquaman, it felt only right to realize Jason this time out of snow,” Berg told Deadline.
Sure, Aquaman might seem gruff and intimidating at times, but producer Greg Silverman thinks that the actor’s innate compassion and kindness is something that’s going to shine through when he plays the character.
“We know Jason’s as a true human being filled with love, compassion and a deep connection to ohana — all of which is the living spirit of Xmas and Frosty,” Silverman said.
Silverman will be joined by Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, Roy Lee, and Momoa as producers of the film. Frosty the Snowman has yet to find a director and has yet to receive a release date.
