Hawaii productions that have recently completed filming …


“Hawaii Five-O”

A pilot episode of a hoped-for redux of the classic Hawaii crime drama completed filming on Oahu in March with Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim (pictured) playing Det. Chin Ho Kelly and Alex O’Loughlin as Det. Steve McGarrett. If picked up by CBS, the new Hawaii Five-O—developed by creators involved in the hit series Fringe and CSI: New York—should premiere this fall.


“Soul Surfer”

This independently financed biopic of Hawaii pro surfer Bethany Hamilton (pictured, right)—who taught herself to surf competitively again after losing her left arm in a shark attack at age 14—completed filming on Oahu’s North Shore and Kauai in February. Set for a 2011 release, the film stars Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt as Bethany’s parents Tom and Cheri Hamilton, singer Carrie Underwood in her first feature film role, and AnnaSophia Robb (pictured, left) as Bethany.



Director Clint Eastwood (pictured) shot several scenes for his next film—a drama following the parallel stories of three people as they seek understanding of death—in West Maui over three days in January. Kapalua, Kaanapali and Lahaina’s Front Street stood in for undisclosed locations where one of the film’s main characters—a French journalist played by Belgian actor Cecile De France—survives, then confronts the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.


“Modern Family”

The cast and crew of ABC’s hit comedy settled at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea for a full week in March to film the series’ first season finale. The plot sounds like textbook “sitcom episode in Hawaii” stuff—the whole family winds up on Maui, spoiling a romantic birthday getaway for family patriarch Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill) and his wife Gloria (Sofia Vergara). But given the superb comic writing and acting Modern Family is already renowned for, we’re expecting a break from the formulaic and some great Maui scenery as well.
