Johnny Knoxville to Play Hawaiian Dick

According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line will adapt the comic book Hawaiian Dick for the big screen…

New Line Cinema has picked up the comic book “Hawaiian Dick” to develop as a starring vehicle for Johnny Knoxville. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been brought on board to adapt. Set in 1953, “Dick” tells the story of a down-on-his-luck big-city detective who is exiled to Hawaii. While there, he gets involved in a kidnapping case of a local island girl who turns up dead but won’t stay that way. The comic, by B. Clay Moore and Steven Griffin, first appeared as a three-issue series in 2002 from Image Comics.

Stay tuned for more on the project.
