Having a front row seat to @therock
’s incredible career trajectory as well as his personal growth over the past eight years has been one of the truly great privileges of my lifetime. We shot our first movie together, JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in Hawaii. It was extremely apparent to me that he had an abundance of respect for the Hawaiian culture, heritage and people there, and how the place where he was raised held such a special place in his heart and spirituality. His entire life he has dreamt of playing the role of King #Kamehameha
, the first king, destined by prophecy, to unite the warring Hawaiian islands. Now it’s time for Dwayne to fulfill his destiny. For us, getting to work with the best & most talented partners in the biz @therock
, @hhgarcia41 @bslater
on seven movies and gratefully counting is a sincere gift. And to add this already stellar team, Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis, who’s had an absolutely legendary career and been the mastermind behind so many classic and iconic films, as well as Randall Wallace, Academy Award-nominated writer of one of our favorite movies of all time-- BRAVEHEART, is honestly a dream come true. We are so thrilled for this once in a lifetime opportunity and can’t wait to see @therock
shine in the role he was born to play. #AKingShallRise #Mana #HawaiiTheBeautiful @sevenbucksprod @ms.wendyjane @wbpics @newlinecinema @rbpix @carblackwood @blairrich #Repost @therock

Dawning of a new day with hope and promise.
Humbled & grateful to begin this once in a lifetime journey.
KING KAMEHAMEHA - the legendary King was the first to unite the warring Hawaiian islands — fulfilling the prophecy that surrounded his fabled life since birth and creating the powerful & spiritual 50th state as we know it today.
Academy Award winning director, #Robert
Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP) will direct.
Academy Award nominated writer, Randall Wallace (BRAVEHEART) will write.
From the day I began my Hollywood career (2001), my dream was to bring this legacy to life. In Polynesian culture we have a belief, that something isn’t done when it’s ready...it’s done when it’s right.
The time is right.
