Dwayne Johnson

Star actor Dwayne Johnson has been contracted to play Hawaiian legendary conqueror King Kamehameha I in a new screenplay titled The King.

According to Maui Now, the new historical epic film will be based on the life events of Kamehameha I, his fabled life. The New Line Cinema film will be directed by Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis. The screenwriter is Randall Wallace.

Confirming the reports, Dwayne shared on Instagram: “KA LA HIKI OLA. The dawning of a new day with hope and promise. Humbled & grateful to begin this once in a lifetime journey. KING KAMEHAMEHA – the legendary King was the first to unite the warring Hawaiian islands — fulfilling the prophecy that surrounded his fabled life since birth and creating the powerful & spiritual 50th state as we know it today. Academy Award-winning director, Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP) will direct. Academy Award-nominated writer, Randall Wallace (Braveheart) will write. From the day I began my Hollywood career (2001), my dream was to bring this legacy to life. In Polynesian culture, we have a belief, that something isn’t done when it’s ready… it’s done when it’s right. The time is right. The one who walks alone.”
