Bra Boys Movie will Premiere in the US
The documentary, Bra Boys, about the notorious Maroubra Beach locals (Sydney, Australia) will premiere in LA on April 7th and it is being released in select US Theaters on 11th April, 2008 (I am guessing in coastal communities).
The movie centers around the Abberton brothers; pro surfers, Sunny Abberton, Jai Abberton, and Koby Abberton and the hardships growing up in Maroubra and Brotherhood. The movie is narrated by Russell Crowe who also has plans to turn the story into a feature movie which will most likely be terrible (see movie version of DogTown and Z-boys- The Lords of Dogtown). Actors can't play Surfers and Skaters, and Surfers and Skaters can't act.
Maroubra's "Bra Boys" are described by police and local media as a gang and have been involved in various scrapes with the law. Back in 2002 the crew was involved in a brawl with off-duty police officers.
The Bra Boys were also involved in the peace talks with gangs following the 2005 Cronulla Riots.
