Jason Momoa To Voice Frosty the Snowman

Jason Momoa has found a way into audience’s hearts with Aquaman and Game of Thrones and now he’s set his eye on a whole new demographic as he has signed on to voice Frosty the Snowman in a live-action/CGI hybrid film for Warner Bros.

The film, which is being penned by David Berenbaum (Elf), will be a hybrid CG/live-action adaptation of the iconic Christmas character created by Walter Rollins & Steve Nelson for the 1950 song first recorded by Gene Autry & The Cass County Boy. Jon Berg and Greg Silverman of Stampede, who previously worked with Berenbaum on the Will Ferrell-starring Christmas classic, are set to produce alongside Geoff Johns of Madghost and Momoa.

“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 said in a statement.

 

Ozark Renewed By Netflix For Expanded Fourth & Final Season

 

The story of Marty and Wendy Byrde will come to an end in a supersized season.

The series, which stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney and Julia Garner, will return for 14 final episodes with the season split into two seven-episode parts.

The streaming platform did not reveal when it plans to air the final run of Ozark but it will likely not be until 2021 at the earliest, depending on how long the COVID-19 production shutdown lasts.
