(L-R) Dave Annable, Tia Carrere, Rob Schneider, and Mena Suvari take a Bride ride through Lanikai

 

 

 

 

 

You May Not Kiss the Bride, Hawaii Film Partners’ romantic comedy  and first feature, is burning through locations all over Oahu so far shooting at scenic Kawela Bay on Oahu’s North Shore, the grand Paul Mitchell Estate in Lanikai, Restaurant Row – where photogs captured Katharine McPhee in a bridal gown and dress for the all important wedding scene to co star Dave Annable – Chinatown and this week?…

In week one the primarily all local crew were in cheerful spirits not the least of which may be working with affable director Rob Hedden, who also wrote the screenplay…29494PCN_mcphee

Any spare time off set, the Laguna Beach-based Hedden can be seen surfing Pop’s off Waikiki or Chun’s Reef on the North Shore…In Bride Annable plays a pet photographer who gets mixed up with a mobster and his daughter, who is angling for American citizenship. Things go terribly awry on their forced honeymoon…

Rob Schneider impressed actors and crew with his spontaneous humor and professionalism…Early on filming in Lanikai had Schneider driving a jeep with Annable, Tia Carrere, and Mena Suvari as passengers trying to escape a very angry Vinnie Jones who was really supposed to stop after he drove off the estate but instead “peeled out” down ? street with screeching tires after the group…

Paparazzi have had a field day capturing the actors at work, including the first day of shooting at Kawela Bay where Annable feigned losing his trunks while swimming and McPhee danced jubilantly on the beach holding the shorts in the air…

 

There was even a bit of life imitating art at the Restaurant Row filming where a group of thuggish extras portraying Croation thugs in Bride surrounded a lone paparazzi and intimdated him to stop filming “or else.” According to a witness one of the extras actually pushed the photog who has authorized police news media credentials…A bit over the top wouldn’t you say guys?…
