Tia Carrere's Divorce -- We'll Split the Movie Script

8/19/2010 4:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tia Carrere did one hell of a job protecting her assets in her divorce from photojournalist Simon Wakelin -- but there's one thing (besides their kid) that the two will have to share ... a movie script they worked on together.

Tia Carrere Divorce
Earlier this week, an L.A. County Superior Court judge finalized their divorce -- and the legal papers show that the two have a pretty solid prenup that takes care of most of the property ... besides a script they wrote together for a movie called "Wave Dancer."

According to the docs, Tia will walk away with a vast majority of the assets, with one big exception -- the couple has agreed to split "all income derived from the script."

FYI, production on the movie, starring Tia, is expected to begin sometime this year.

Only in Hollywood.

Why would they split a movie script that would waste film and go straight to the $1 bin. Ridiculous.

Too bad about Tia and Simon, but more especially due to any negative effects their divorce may have on their cooperatively produced 'movie-to-be' ('WAVE DANCER'), the story of Hawaiian Rell Kapolioka'ehukai Sunn, who was and is one of the most beloved Hawaiians in modern times (right up there with Eddie Aikau and Duke Kahanamoku). Rell was of mixed Chinese (father), Hawaiian and Irish (mother) ancestry and went on to champion the cause of women in surfing. She was a fascinating woman in too many ways to recount here, but in the mid 1980s (at age 36) she discovered a lump that proved to be Stage 4 breast cancer. Fighting the condition into semi-remission at least 4 times, she eventually suc***bed to it in 1998 (age 48). Rell was the first woman Hawaiian lifeguard, a master 'waterwoman' and expert diver, and a champion surfer. She learned to surf under the tutelage of the early 50s longboard masters at Makaha (Oahu West Shore) and did a great many things in her all-too-short life. A beautiful woman, she was also possessed of the true essence of what we call the 'Aloha Spirit' (a selfless giving love for all people and the environment that characterises 'befohtime' Hawaiian culture).

Hopefully the planned movie based on her life will not take too many typically 'Hollywood' liberties and will stick to the real story of her life. Tia Carerre, being Hawaiian, should know how important that is, since otherwise there be lottsa bruddahs at Makaha who get plenny unhappy, udderwise! Rell is regarded as the 'Queen of Makaha' and a foundation exists to foster her causes (women's breast cancer awareness and the welfare of young children from disadvantaged families).
