Actresses ride 'Beautiful Wave'
Patricia Richardson, Aimee Teegarden among castNEW YORK -- Patricia Richardson, Aimee Teegarden and Helen Slater will shoot the curl.
The trio are set to star in "Beautiful Wave," a surfing coming-of-age drama that David Mueller is directing from a script he co-wrote with Lynn Salt.
"Wave" centers on a teenager (Teegarden) who goes to live with her grandmother (Richardson) in Santa Cruz, Calif., one summer and discovers the sport of surfing -- and a family secret as well. Stuart Cameron is producing; Teegarden will make her producing debut as associate producer.
The independently financed movie is targeted for the 2010 festival circuit.
Richardson is best known for her role on the series "Home Improvement," Teegarden broke out on "Friday Night Lights" and Slater -- who, like Richardson and Teegarden, is repped by Innovative Artists -- co-starred in a slew of films including "The Secret of My Success" and "City Slickers."
