“HRH Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton will be married on 29 April 2011, at Westminster Abbey in London. The British Consulate General in San Francisco will be celebrating by engaging the Bay Area community in all of the excitement.

“We first reported on the film about a year ago when we learned that Hanson was developing a movie based on the late legendary surfer Jay Moriarty and that Sean Penn was considering the Hesson role. According to Variety, the story will center on Moriarty’s “quest to ride the iconic Northern California break known as Mavericks, where winter swells bring in treacherous waves the size of five-story buildings.”
O. K. then.
Penn would play “Rick ‘Frosty’ Hesson, an ex-lifeguard, champion swimmer and mentor to the tragic Moriarty.”
That’s pretty much all the detail that’s out there right now. They’re still just talking about it.
