Gerard Butler has signed on to play surfer Rick “Frosty” Hesson in Curtis Hanson’s Mavericks. This is a movie based on the late legendary surfer Jay Moriarty and that Sean Penn was considering the Hesson role. The story will center on Moriarty’s "quest to ride the iconic Northern California break known as Mavericks, where winter swells bring in treacherous waves the size of five-story buildings. Moriarity trained for more than a year under Hesson, forging a relationship that transformed both their lives." Hanson will direct from a script by Kario Salem and Brandon Hooper.
