October 4th, 2011 by Paul Martin

Walden Media’s film Of Men and Mavericks has landed a studio.  Fox 2000 has joined to co-finance and distribute the film domestically.

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 Mavericks north of Half Moon Bay before dying in a diving accident at age 22.

It will detail how Moriarty’s persistence, discipline and potential transform Frosty from a reluctant mentor into a father figure. As their bond strengthens, Moriarty learns to push his limits.
