Jason Momoa To Voice Frosty The Snowman In Live-Action Film

From Aquaman to Frosty the Snowman.

Jason Momoa is set to play iconic Christmas character Frosty the Snowman in a live-action remake of the classic holiday movie.

The Aquaman actor will lend his voice to the titular snowman in Warner Bros and Stampede Ventures' upcoming live action/CGI flick, which is written by Jon Berg and David Berenbaum, who worked on the festive blockbuster Elf.

Momoa is one of the film's producers, alongside Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, and Greg Silverman, who worked on Aquaman.

This is the 40-year-old Hawaiian-born actor’s first major voice-acting role and is a departure from the action-packed roles he is known for.

"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 realise Jason this time out of snow," said Berg.

Silverman added in a statement to Deadline: "We know Jason 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."

The original Frosty the Snowman was based on the 1950s Christmas song and was turned into a popular television special in 1969. The most recent adaptation was 2005's The Legend of Frosty the Snowman, which was narrated by Burt Reynolds and featured Spongebob Squarepants voice actor Bill Fagerbakke in the lead role.

Meanwhile, Momoa can next be seen portraying Duncan Idaho in Warner Bros' adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi classic Dune.

Denis Villeneuve is helming the film, which also stars the likes of Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin and Stellan Skarsgard.
