Jason Momoa will return to the ocean to shoot his next film. However, this time not for the continuation of “Aquaman”, but a new biopic.
Momoa has teamed up again with producer Peter Safran (Suicide Squad, Peacemaker) to produce a biopic about legendary Hawaiian surfer Duke Kahanamoku. The film is expected to explore this iconic and gentle man as the legendary swimmer, pioneer, and undisputed father of modern surfing.
Kahanamoku was a native Hawaiian swimmer, competing in four different Olympics from 1912 to 1932. He went on to win five Olympic medals for his skills in the sport. After retiring, the athlete opened gas stations around Hawaii and eventually became the sheriff of Honolulu for thirty years.

Apart from swimming, Kahanamoku is also known to many as the person who popularized surfing and brought it to a legitimate sports arena. Unfortunately, the swimming champion died of a heart attack in 1968 at the age of 77.
Meanwhile, Momoa himself is also a Hawaiian. The project currently does not have a title. Writer Chris Kekaniokalani Bright will write the script. No other production information is currently available, including details of the cast and director.
Safran, speaking with Variety, said that the story of the legendary surfer has fascinated him for years. Therefore, to be able to work on this project with Momoa and the others was a boon to him.
