The information about the character isn’t accurate, but this is the new project (via Deadline):
Garret Dillahunt is set to star opposite Jason Momoa in Braven, the indie action-thriller being directed by Lin Oeding. The former Raising Hope star will play villain in the film about about a lumberjack (Momoa) who battles mercenaries who are after a heroin stash that has found its way into his family’s mountain cabin. Dillahunt plays the money-hungry trucker who put the drugs there.
And a bit more info from an earlier announcement:
The pic, scripted by Thomas Pa’a Sibbett from an original story by Mike Nilon, centers a humble logger residing along the U.S./Canada border who is confronted by a group of deadly drug runners in his secluded cabin in the mountains, and he must do everything in his power to protect his family. Momoa and Brian Mendoza’s Pride of Gypsies is producing alongside Nilon and Molly Hassell.
Best wishes and here’s hoping for a fantastic year ahead!
