Curtis Hanson will direct the biopic Jay Moriarty, based on the true adventures of the surfing legend, with Sean Penn in talks to play his mentor Rick "Frosty" Hesson, according to Production Weekly.

The day before his 23rd birthday, Jay drowned while free-diving alone off the Lohifushi Island resort in the Maldives, where he was visiting for a photo shoot.
