Jason Momoa rejects 'Aquaman 2' project
Aquaman star Jason Momoa says he can't continue to shoot the sequel because he's now busy trying to stop construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope, a 1.4 billion-US dollar scientific project on land considered sacred to native Hawaiians.
"Sorry Warner Bros we can't shoot 'Aquaman 2,'" Jason Momoa wrote in an Instagram post. "Because Jason got run over by a bulldozer trying to stop the desecration of his native land THIS iS NOT HAPPENING." "Go somewhere else," added the actor.
According to "thewrap.com", an entertainment news website, Momoa also asked fans to support the protest movement in a follow-up post: "During this time, we are trying to unite both kānaka and Hawaii born peoples alike to protect not only the mauna, but also our way of life and greatest natural resources in Hawaii as a whole."
Momoa has spent several weeks protesting on the highest point on the state of Hawaii, Mauna Kea, "thewrap.com" reported.
Earlier, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson also protested the construction of the giant telescope.
