Actor Jennifer Love Hewitt did an oh-so-secret one-day photo shoot on Saturday Aug. 1 at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua for CBS Watch!, the network’s online magazine…Two Maui crew worked on the project…When Hewitt was 15 years old she co starred in the Steven Bochco’s short-lived 1994 Oahu-based series The Byrds of Paradise, arguably one of the most honest dramas about Hawaii. The series lasted 13 episodes before being cancelled over studio issues between Bochco and ABC…

The CBS Watch! photo shoot is for a Hewitt feature story since she stars in the network’s Ghost Whisperer series, about a newlywed who helps dead people pass into the afterlife. The producers of Ghost Whisperer include John Gray and medium James Van Praagh

Principal photography now is supposed to start Sept. 22 on Oahu…Some big names being floated to appear in the film include Kauai resident Pierce Brosnan and his son, Dylan Thomas. Also mentioned is Jack Nickolson‘s daughter, Lorraine Broussard…Two other A-list actresses have been approached to appear in the film but likely would have to agree to take a small salary upfront and a part of the gross on the back end…
