Momao, who recently starred in "Game Of Thrones", will also produce and star in the movie.
"Kane" will be set up in the recently-bankrupt Detroit, Michigan, reports contactmusic.com.
"I really wanted to make an action movie with heart and set it in Detroit. The city used to symbolise much of what was grand and noble about America but then lost it all to economic decline and urban decay," Momoa said.
"This parallels the story of Kane Malu, a man who is down but not yet out. Kane is the story of a phoenix rising from the ashes," he added.
