Actor Jason Momoa hopes to make a movie with his friend and actor Dwayne Johnson once the stars' schedules align.

As per People magazine, the Aquaman star appeared virtually on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, where he spoke about his longtime friendship with Dwayne Johnson.

The two actors have been pals for almost 20 years after meeting in Hawaii through a mutual friend, and during the interview, Jason expressed his hopes that they will be able to make a movie together when the time is right.

"We tried to get together and make a movie together but it's just he's way busier than I am and I'm pretty busy right now so, one of these days!" he said.

Host Jimmy Fallon excitedly replied, "You HAVE to make a movie together!" before Jason joked that it's definitely possible because Dwayne actually owes him a favour.

"We will! And it's really cool because now he's kind of in my pocket so I can call him up and be like, 'Yo!' and I got him," the star said.

In April, Jason helped Dwayne celebrate his daughter Tiana Gia's third birthday by sending a personalised video message from Aquaman, one of her favourite superheroes.

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

"I'll see you soon, happy third birthday. Bye Jazzy, bye Tia, love you," he added.

The Jungle Cruise star filmed the sweet moment his daughters Tiana and Jasmine, both of whom he shares with wife Lauren Hashian, were glued to the television screen and called the birthday girl's reaction "priceless."

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