Hot New Trailer: Gerard Butler In ‘Chasing Mavericks’

So this is why we saw Gerard Butler filming in wetsuits months ago! He was shooting the film ‘Chasing Mavericks’ (formerly called ‘Of Mice and Mavericks‘). This movie is based on the life of surfer Jay Moriarty who was killed in a surfing accident at the age of 22. Jay was mentored by surfing veteran Frosty Hesson, which is who Gerard plays.

I don’t know if the movie deals with Jay’s death, but it looks very inspirational. Gerard seems to do a great job playing the reluctant mentor who develops a fatherly relationship with this young surfer. For some reason, I keep thinking ‘Karate Kid’ with surfing- LOL. ‘Chasing Mavericks’ hits theaters in October. Does it look interesting to you?
