Just days after Dave Bautista voiced his interest in doing a “buddy cop” movie with Jason Momoa on Twitter, the Aquaman star on Monday confirmed that the project is “off to the races,” while appearing on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

Bautista shared his initial idea in a tweet last week, writing, “Just going to throw this out into the atmosphere and see what happens. Here we go… Me and Momoa in a Lethal Weapon type buddy cop movie directed by David Leitch. Ok! There it is. Now we wait.”

Turns out, Bautista didn’t have to wait very long — Momoa confirmed he was on board via text soon after.

“He literally texted me four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film. We love each other. We are on See and Dune together,’” Momoa told Corden. “And I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he said, ‘Let’s do it in Hawaii.’ And I said, ‘Let’s do it. I have an idea.’ So it’s off to the races now. We’re doing it.”

Corden then pointed out the ease with which the two top-shelf actors were able to simply decide to begin developing a movie on their own accord. “This is what you can do when you’re Jason Momoa and Dave Bautista,” he joked.

“It sells itself, bro,” Momoa responded. “Dave loves wearing Speedos. I love wearing board shorts. And both of us with our shirts off. He’ll be grumpy and I’ll be charming. Boom. It sells itself, bro. I have the hair. He doesn’t have hair. We cover all the demographics.”
