Jason Momoa got his chance to play big screen hero last summer in Conan The Barbarian, but now it looks like he's on a bit of a villainous streak. He will be squaring off against Sylvester Stallone and Sung Kang in Bullet To The Head early next year and now he's going to be the baddie in Wolves.

The directorial debut of X-Men writer David Hayter, the thriller is about a young man who turns into a werewolf and finds himself falsely accused of murdering his parents. Going on the run to a village called Lupine Ridge, he discovers that he's not the only supernatural thing out in the world. THR says that Lucas Till, who starred in X-Men: First Class will star in the movie and says that Momoa will be "the badass werewolf patriarch of the town."

Momoa, of course, is no stranger to playing leader roles. In the first season of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones the actor portrayed the Khal Drogo, a warlord who ruled the Dothraki nomads.The actor is actually in the midst of making his own directorial debut at the moment, making a film titled Road to Paloma that he co-wrote with Robert Mollohan and Jonny Hirschbein.

Hayter, who also wrote the script for Wolves, wrote both X-Men and X2 as well as Watchmen and The Scorpion King. He is also known for his voice-over work, most notably for playing the character Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series of video games. Production on Wolves begins next month in Toronto.
