Jim Meenaghan and Brandon Hooper are currently writing an untitled feature for Walden Media. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story will revolve around Maverick's, one of the largest and most dangerous surf breaks anywhere on the planet.

The story follows the true-life adventures of surfer Jay Moriarity. When he was still just a teenager, he was able to conquer the wave breaks at Northern California's Maverick's. There, the winter swells can reach up to five stories high. Sadly, Jay died at the age of 23 due to a free diving accident.

There was no word on when the project would go into production.
