Charlize Theron to Produce a Big Wave Female Surfing Film with MULAN Director Niki Caro
Charlize Theron is teaming up again with Netflix to produce a new feature film inspired by female big wave surfers. Mulan director Niki Caro has been hired to helm the movie which is inspired by some of the “top female surfers who are fighting for the right to compete in big-wave contests.”
The movie is based on the New York Times Magazine article The Fight For Gender Equality In One of the Most Dangerous Sports on Earth by Daniel Duane and the women surfers Bianca Valenti, Andrea Moller, Paige Alms, and Keala Kennelly.
The story for the film will follow “four women who form a powerful bond as they surf the world’s most dangerous spots and fight for the right to compete in big-wave.”
The script for the film is being written by Becky Johnston.
Theron, AJ Dix, and Beth Kono are producing the project for Denver and Delilah alongside Caro.
