DWAYNE JOHNSON IS HAWAIIAN KING KAMEHAMEHA IN ROBERT ZEMECKIS EPIC ADVENTURE MOVIE! 1ST PHOTO FROM PAUL VERHOEVEN'S 17TH CENTURY DRAMA 'BENEDETTA' STARRING VIRGINIE EFIRA, LAMBERT WILSON, CHARLOTTE RAMPLING

 DWAYNE JOHNSON TO PLAY
KING KAMEHAMEHA OF HAWAII
Dwayne Johnson will play the king of Hawaii
I'm guessing he has waited for this role all his life: as 'Deadline' reports Dwayne Johnson will play Hawaiian king Kamehameha in Robert Zemeckis directed epic adventure THE KING based on the script from Braveheart's Randall Wallace!

Kamehameha is the legendary king who was the first to unite the warring Hawaiian islands, which fulfilled the prophecy that surrounded his fabled life since birth. He took control of Hawaii’s destiny, and gave the islanders leverage in advancing the culture in trading with the foreign ships from Europe that began showing up on the shores of islands that must have seemed like paradise, albeit a sometimes dangerous one as explorers like Simon Metcalfe and Captain James Cook discovered before Kamehameha forcibly unified the islands.

  1. Aloha - that's all I know Hawaiian. People will say that's more than enough as the word has a lot of deep cultural meanings.

    The name Kamehamehs seems to fit the 'macho' actor that will play the king:)

    Benedetta, the nun, was accused of having sex with another womam at the convent? Well,there were no men there... Anyway, the actress that got the part, Virginia Efira, will find it a challenging one.
    Charlotte Rempling, the experienced actress, will do a good job in the movie.

    1. She apparently became very famous for performing holy miracles and rose high in the church, but Vatican turned its back on her when they heard about her sexual scandals. Church and sexual scandals, how positively novel!

  2. I can't think of anyone better for the role. Church and sex scandals are quite ridiculous these days. Here we have a teacher who has taught at a religious school for many years with no issues but the school found out she was married to a woman and are now firing her. Maybe instead of firing a great teacher because of who she loves outside of the classroom, the church should start cleaning its own porch first. And, religious people wonder why we think religion is such a joke anymore.

    1. Church is the worst type of rotten cheese filled with holes. And you can't even spread it on your toast...

  3. Ooooo, hijinks at the convent! I've known several lesbian nuns over the years. One was still a pracising nun but the others had long since ditched the church.

  4. I have to admit that I loved Dwayne Johnson in Jumamji but I am not sure about his non comedic roles...sigh!

    1. This one is his lifelong dream and goal. Just as Hanibbal of Carthage is Vin Diesel's :)
