Jason Momoa is planning to produce a biographical drama on Duke Kahanamoku
Jason Momoa, the star of Aquaman, is planning to produce a biographical drama on Duke Kahanamoku, a great Hawaiian Olympic swimmer who is credited with popularising surfing as a sport.
Peter Safran is also listed as a producer
Peter Safran is also listed as a producer on the project. Other producer includes Susan Miller Carlson and Eric Carlson of the Carlson Company. Chris Kekaniokalani Bright is reportedly scripting the script, according to the entertainment website Variety. Recently, Jason Momoa voiced the American Masters film Waterman — Duke: Ambassador of Aloha, which was based on fellow Hawaiian Kahanamoku. Over the course of four Olympic Games from 1912 to 1932, Kahanamoku won five medals.
Jason, Chris and the Carlsons, is truly a gift
Safron told, “Duke’s story is one that has fascinated me for years. To now have the opportunity to tell it with the respect that it deserves, in collaboration with Jason, Chris and the Carlsons, is truly a gift”.
Producers have stated that the unnamed movie will examine this iconic and compassionate man as the legendary swimmer, trailblazer, and the unquestioned father of modern surfing.
