Jason Momoa is filming a new movie and shopping in Toronto right now
The actor was working hard on his Apple+ sci-fi series See for more than a year in different locations around the city, and has now embarked on a new production, Slumberland, a fantasy film coming to Netflix.

For the movie, Momoa will be transformed into a half-man, half-beast creature with the help of costume and CGI — fitting given his burly physique and imposing stature.
Fellow celebs Kyle Chandler (Argo/Friday Night Lights), Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids) and Marlow Barkley (Single Parents) will also join him on screen in the flick, about which few details have been revealed and which is currently filming in and around Woodbine Park.
Based on sneaky shots from passersby and those actually behind-the-scenes on set, it looks like there is a lot of green screen being used, including for a shot that has Momoa and Barkley riding on some sort of vehicle or animal in The Beach Cinemas parking lot at Queen St. E and Kingston Road.
From what we can see, the costumes seem pretty extravagant, and very similar to Momoa's style (minus the tusks, of course).
Knowing how often he's been spotted around downtown during the time he's been here, this surely won't be the last fans here see of Momoa, even during lockdown.
