Leven Rambin Waves at 'Mavericks'
Surf's up for Leven Rambin (“The Hunger Games” “Grey’s Anatomy”), who's been tapped for the female lead in “Mavericks,” opposite Gerard Butler and Jonny Weston, Variety's Dave McNary exclusively reports. Based on the true story of Jay Moriarty’s rise to the forefront of big wave surfing, “Mavericks” will feature Rambin as a California surfer girl who is Moriarty’s best friend and the object of his adoration. Weston will play Moriarty and Butler is portraying Rick “Frosty” Hesson. Moriarity sought to ride the iconic Northern California break known as Mavericks, where winter swells bring in treacherous waves the size of five-story buildings.
