Hawaiian Dick: According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinema has picked up the comic book "Hawaiian Dick" to develop as a starring vehicle for Johnny Knoxville. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift have been brought on board to adapt.

Set in 1953, "Dick" tells the story of a down-on-his-luck big-city detective who is exiled to Hawaii. While there, he gets involved in a kidnapping case of a local island girl who turns up dead but won't stay that way.

The comic, by B. Clay Moore and Steven Griffin, first appeared as a three-issue series in 2002 from Image Comics.
