Gov. Lingle said that of the three big budget films set to shoot in Hawaii this year, 'Tides' stands to generate $85 million in spending for the island state. Production is slated to begin by the end of the year, with a release date pegged for 2011.

The new 'Pirates' comes on the heels of 2007's 'At Worlds End,' which grossed over $300 million domestically, making it one of the highest-grossing films in U.S. history.
