By updating ABC’s classic drama series as a contemporary horror movie, Fantasy Island takes quite a few liberties with the television show’s tried and true formula. But one thing left unchanged is the enigmatic Mr. Rourke, the titular island’s keeper who could wear the hell out of a white suit. The legendary Ricardo Montalbán inhabited the role for the entirety of the show’s original run, and now Michael Peña steps into those spotless white shoes. At the recent paradisiacal press junket for Fantasy Island in Santa Monica, CA, we had an opportunity to sit down with Peña and ask just how, exactly, did he manage to get through filming without staining his pearly white wardrobe? After sharing his secret, Peña also told us about the film’s one-of-a-kind production in Fiji, and pitched us a horror remake of David Hasselhoff’s totally ‘80s Knight Rider.
