Have you been wondering why Gerard Butler has had a sudden interest in surfing? The dude is out there like, all the time, bro.
It turns out it's for his new surfing movie called Of Men and Mavericks, and they also just casted their leading ladies!
Here's who they got, and a bit of plot:
Walden Media’s Gerard Butler surfing drama Of Men and Mavericks has landed a studio — Fox 2000 — while Elisabeth Shue and Abigail Spencer are joining the cast.
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.
We'll be honest: that sounds a lot better than most surfing movies. For some reason, they don't usually do it for us!
But we'll suspend that because let's be honest — Gerard is a handsome, handsome man.
