Filming Road to Paloma

Film being made on Fort Mojave Indian Tribe Reservation

By Neil YoungScenes from a movie—The Road to Paloma—are being filmed over a 21⁄2-week period on and around the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe reservation. The movie stars Jason Momoa, most recently seen in 2011 film “Conan the Barbarian.”

Momoa was also featured in the television series “Stargate: Atlantis.”

Momoa, 32, co-wrote the script of the Road to Paloma with actor Robert Mollohan, who also appears in the film. Momoa is producing and directing the film with his crew of four people.

He plays a character who is a Mojave tribal member on the run, returning home after a six month absence. Regarding his decision to use the reservation as a major backdrop for the film, Momoa said, “Basically all the things that were in the script really just fit.”
Comment:  Momoa is a tiny bit Native, which doesn't justify his playing a Mojave Indian. Given his stereotypical portrayal in Johnson Family Vacation, one wonders how bad this movie will be.

At least he's less intelligence-insulting than Sharkboy, who's so white, the sun said DAYUM! Okay, that was lame. Anyone want to do better?
