Watch the latest French trailer for Fox's Chasing Mavericks surfing drama starring Gerard Butler and Jonny Weston
Michael Apted and Curtis Hanson direct Chasing Mavericks (a.k.a. Of Men and Mavericks) which surfs its way into theaters on October 26th and looks like a great journey for not only surf fans, but those seeking strong performances in a touching drama.
Scripted by Kario Salem, the story tells of the late Jay Moriarity and his quest to ride the iconic Northern California break known as Mavericks. Here, winter swells bring in treacherous waves the size of five-story buildings.
Moriarty trained with his mentory Frosty Hesson for more than a year and the two forged a unique relationship that changed both their lives. Moriarity's story is one of inspiration to surfers worldwide who have coined the phrase, "Live like Jay."
Moriarty died in 2001 in a diving accident in the Maldive Islands.
Also in the cast are Elisabeth Shue, Leven Rambin, Abigail Spencer, Scott Eastwood, Taylor Handley, Jenica Bergere and Channon Roe.
