The Islands Movie

The biggest movie in Hawaiian history, ‘The Islands’ commences shooting April 2016.

The film, from director Tim Chey (‘Freedom’, ‘David and Goliath’), will hit theaters nationwide in December 2016.

The ground-breaking movie is based on the incredible true stories of Hawaii’s beginnings from Captain Cook’s arrival to King Kamehameha’s unification wars through the chaotic last months of the monarchy of Queen Liliʻuokalani.

“I’m thrilled the audience will finally witness the untold stories of Hawaii incredible history,” says Chey. “No one knows how the islands really came to being.”

Like other historical movies such as ‘Master and Commander’ and ‘Dances With Wolves’, Chey believes there will be a huge audience for the film when it comes to theaters next fall. “There’s no doubt in my mind that we can hit a home run at the theaters,” says Chey. “Anything Hawaii is red hot.”

Chey also produced the 2014 film ‘Freedom’ starring stars Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, and Sharon Leal that was shot on the Amistad and ‘David and Goliath’ filmed in North Africa and London.

So will Chey win the Oscar with ‘The Islands’?

“My hope is the film will be Oscar-worthy, not necessarily Oscar-winning,” says Chey. “Politics unfortunately enters the race sometimes and the best films don’t always win.”
