Frank Coraci will direct "Hawaiian Dick". News on that matter was first brought to public by The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on the 2002 comic by B. Clay Moore and Steven Griffin, the film is set in 1953 in Hawaii and tells the story of a down-on-his-luck big-city detective who gets involved in a kidnapping case of a local island girl who turns up dead but won't stay that way.
The script is written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Elsewhere, Craig Perry and Jim Strader will both give hand at producing, while Johnny Knoxville is still in negotiation to star in.
