    Jason Momoa is determined to one day make a film with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson

    The 'Aquaman' star insisted during an appearance on 'The Tonight Show' that although Dwayne is “way busier” than he is, they will make a movie together "one of these days"


    Asked by host Jimmy Fallon how he and Dwayne know one another, he explained: “I met him almost 20 years ago in Hawaii. We both have the same very close friend and we met through that.

    "We said we’d stay in touch and we’ve tried to get together and make a movie together, just he’s way busier than I am and I’m pretty busy right now. One of these days...”

    Dwayne previously asked Jason if he could make a birthday video for his three-year-old daughter Tiana. And after filming the video message, Jason joked that the wrestler-turned-actor now owes him a favour.

    He said: “We’re kind of partners now. I did the birthday message so now you’ve got to do the movie!”

    In April, Jason made the special video message for Dwayne's daughter.

    The movie star enlisted the help of the Jason, 41, to surprise Tiana with a personalised message to mark her third birthday on April 18.

    Dwayne, 49 - who has Tiana and Jasmine, five, with his wife Lauren Hashian, as well as Simone, 19, from an earlier relationship - filmed his daughter's "priceless" reaction to the clip and uploaded it to Instagram.

    Jason said in the celebratory video: "I'm sorry I couldn't be there but I love you and tell your papa that I love him too.

    "I'll see you soon, happy 3rd birthday. Bye Jazzy, bye Tia, love you."

    Dwayne captioned the clip: "I had to make the call... it's what daddy's do.

    "I can't thank my brother @prideofgypsies enough for making this adoring 3yr old's birthday the best EVER. Her reaction is priceless and what it's all about (sic)."
