Entertainment: Bethany Hamilton, Kimee Balmilero, George Helm, Martin Wayans, Augie T., Adam Sandler and Jason Momoa

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Bethany Hamilton’s new film “Unstoppable” will be playing on big screens starting July 12th. It’s a continuation of the 2011 film “Soul Surfer.” She was 13 when she was attacked by a 15-foot tiger shark, a run-in that cost her her left arm. Not only did she survive, she was back on the competitive surfing circuit just a year later. “Unstoppable” will follow her journey as a professional.

Stagefish presents “An Unapologetic Night Of Singing Your Face Off!” It’s going to be at the Honolulu Museum of Art tomorrow starting at 7:30 p.m. Stage Fish is a Honolulu based theatre production company founded by local actress Kimee Balmilero. The hope for Stagefish is to provide professional opportunities for local artists who might not have the ability to commit to a longer theater run and to produce work that may attract a younger arts crowd.

There is an independent short film about George Helm and casting directors are looking for someone to play the revered Hawaiian activist and singer. Look for more details on Sande Alessi’s Facebook page.

Actor and comedian Marlon Wayans is coming back to Hawaii. He’ll perform a total of four shows at Blue Note Hawaii. They’ll be at 6-30 and 9 o’clock.. on the nights of July 23rd and 24th. Wayans acted in the 2004 movie “White Chicks.”

Jason Momoa says he would absolutely remake Twins with Peter Dinklage. When asked if he would be interested at a recent EVO Celebrity Fan Fest, he said “Absolutely! That would be amazing. I love that movie.” Rumors about a long-coming addition to the Twins franchise have been around a long time. Triplets, starring Eddie Murphy as the pair’s long-lost brother, had been in the works since 2012.
