Fox 2000 will co-finance and distribute Of Men and Mavericks domestically. Curtis Hanson is scheduled to start shooting later this month in Northern California.

Of Men and Mavericks follows a chapter in the real-life story of young Northern Californian Jay Moriarty, a world champion surfer and adventurer who made his reputation surfing Marvericks north of Half Moon Bay before dying in a diving accident at age 22.

Gerard plays local surfing legend Frosty Hesson, who mentored and trained the young Moriarty, played by Jonny Weston. Kario Salem and Brandon Hooper penned the script.

New title and new developments! Looks like things are shaping up! Made me think of the novel "Of Mice and Men" which the title comes from the Robert Burns' poem "To a Mouse", which read: "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley." (The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go oft awry.) thus Of Mavericks and Men perhaps. Think Mr. Butler had a hand in it? Catchy.
