From IGN.Com :

According to a recent Associated Press report, the producers of Columbia Pictures' tentatively-titled Helldorado, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, are stirring things up in Hawaii with their plans to film at a sacred site.

The news service reports that filmmakers intend to send a jeep plummeting over a thirty-foot waterfall at Kapena Falls and into the pool below. The site is considered sacred since ancient Hawaiian royalty once used the pool for bathing. There are still petroglyphs on rocks in the area, including one of a dog, believed to be the "guardian spirit" of the falls. Many locals still believe in the spirit and will only jump in the pool after checking to see if he is away from home. This is done by dropping a leaf into the water. If it floats, then the pool is safe. If it sinks, then they postpone their swim. Sounds like the filmmakers could be in for trouble from more than just local preservationists.

The scene in question is tentatively set to shoot early next month. Shooting on "Helldorado" began late last month in Oahu.

The Rock better be careful; those old Hawaiian curses are nothing to scoff at ... Remember that old TV show Sightings? There was one segment where they talked about a highway that the government was going to build over an old Hawaiian burial ground, but constructed eventually had to be postponed indefinitely because all this weird stuff kept happening (unexplained accidents, equipment turning on and off by themselves, even deaths!).

    I remember all the problems the Brady kids had when they found that tiki god on the construction site. Bad Hawaiian mojo is nothing to scoff at.
    On a more serious note, you would think that they could use special effects for something like that.

    Why they can't just drive the jeep off of any other tropical waterfall in the world is completely beyond me.

    Why this movie even exists is completely beyond me.

    It exists because Cristopher F'n Walken is gonna be in it.

    There is no other reason for this movie to be made.

    They should just do the test that the locals do at that little pool. Try floating the jeep; if it sinks then the gaurdian spirit isn't home so they can go ahead and film the scene.

    I also hear people don't like the Idea of him being that king kamehameha (spelling?) because his ancentry is differernt. Rock's grandpappy was Samoan?

    I'll elaborate a little on this. Rock is Samoan. Hawaiians HATE Samoans. Samoans HATE Hawaiians. Last I heard the Kamehameha producers aren't even gonna try to cast Rock because of the backlash they got when people here heard he was up for the part.
