Jason Momoa, who has himself been a rock climbing enthusiast for a long time, mentioned how things that he loved had been incorporated on sets of Aquaman during an interview with The Men’s Health Magazine back in 2019. He mentioned how the production company had built a ‘rock climbing gym’ on the sets of Aquaman, in Australia, during the shoots, which he really enjoyed making use of.
Rock-climbing as Aquaman
Jason Momoa also mentioned how he was training particularly for rock climbing during the shoot, and it wasn’t just about getting ripped and having a six-pack for the screen. The actor talked about how he wanted to keep his diet on track and get in the best shape because of his passion for the sport and said that the activity really helped him keep his mind in a “beautiful place.”
The Production Team
The Climb will be executively produced by Eli Holzman, Matt Shanfield, Jason Momoa, Aaron Saidman, Brian Mendoza, Chris Sharma, and Jonathan Retseck. On the other hand, Jason is also set to start shooting for his upcoming movie, the sequel to DC’s Aquaman, released back in 2018.
