There’s a new high-stakes surf drama on the way, and no, it’s not Chasing Mavericks. Or Blue Crush. Or Point Break.
Drift revolves around two brothers in 1970s Australia who start a backyard surf gear business in order to help get their family out of debt. Xavier Samuel and Myles Pollard star as the brothers, Jimmy and Andy Kelly; Avatar star Sam Worthington plays their surf photographer friend JB. The movie, produced by the Aussie independent film company Hopscotch, is due out in Australia in 2013, with a US release to follow.

What do you think, readers — how will Drift shape up next to its surf-drama peers?
