Features Galore in Hawaii

No greenscreen needed here--Stiller is opting for the real deal on Kauai for "Tropic Thunder"

There's been a lot of feature film news coming out of Hawaii lately...

Two huge productions are slated to start filming very soon: Ben Stiller-helmed "Tropic Thunder" starring Stiller himself, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Jay Baruchel, Owen Wilson, and Nick Nolte will shoot on Kauai, and "(Untitled Genre Project)" (ahem) is reportedly going to shoot somewhere in Hawaii.

On the B-list is Rigel Entertainment’s "Tyrannosaurus Azteca" filming at Oahu's Kualoa Ranch.

This fall, a Princess Ka'iulani biopic starring Q'orianka Kilcher ("The New World") will start shooting on Oahu.

A local indie feature will start shooting soon as well: Iolani grad and current USC film school student Ryan Ishii will helm his second feature, a hip hop-infused fantasy fable about war and family called "Ramona's Egatac." Ryan is casting from now till July 10th, so interested actors can email him at ryan.ishii@gmail.com.
