Will Fetters has signed on to write the adventure tale Crazy for the Storm for Warner Bros.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Crazy for the Storm is based on Norman Ollestad's memoir, published in June by Ecco Press, which has spent more than a month on the Los Angeles Times' best-seller list. Warners acquired rights to the book in the spring.
The project centers on Ollestad's coming of age in Southern California with a father who pushed him to embrace such extreme sports as skiing and surfing, as well as their complicated relationship. When Ollestad was 11, a plane carrying the two crashed in the San Gabriel Mountains, killing his father and stranding Ollestad on an icy peak, where he was forced to use skills his father taught him.
No production date has been set.
