    Point Break Remake

    Hi, I’ll be your captain when it comes to any and all POINT BREAK remake news. Not because I want to be, but for some reason the movie news gods seem to drop all the tidbits of this remake on my shift.

    Last month, we found out that Gerard Butler would attempt to fill the shoes once worn by Patrick Swayze as he stepped into the role of Bodhi. Then we heard that Keanu Reeves had no interest in even making a cameo for the remake. But who do you replace Reeves with? Who will play the new and improved Johnny Utah?

    None other than the Cobra Commander.

    No, I’m being serious here. Luke Bracey, who played the Cobra Commander in G.I. JOE: RETALIATION will take on the Utah role. Personally, I have very fond memories of POINT BREAK so a remake of this is sort of silly, but that’s the nature of things these days in the world of cinema.

    Ericson Core (INVINCIBLE) will direct the script from Kurt Wimmer (SALT, TOTAL RECALL). The plot will be similar to that of its 1991 counterpart, but instead of surfing being the focus it will be “extreme sports”.

    Anyone optimistic on this one?
    First I'm guilty as charged for actually liking this movie. Typical 90's, Summer popcorn flick. First off you can't replace Swayze. Second, why would anyone even bother to remake a movie that was supposed to haul in cash but bombed? It only made a total of 48 mil domestically. Funny thing is hardly anyone knows that James Cameron was producer on this!

    Also although I'm not sure but fairly certain, the term Point Break is surfing lingo. So to do a remake that is about extreme sports and not surfing...well...

    Getting antsy about the Point Break remake? Calm down, brah, producer Broderick Johnson has an update.

    Johnson spoke with Collider while making the rounds for Transcendence and states production is well underway for the new film starring Gerard Butler as Bodhi and Luke Bracey as Utah.

    He states the remake will be a different film; they're only keeping the characters and the basics: "The script only shares in common with the original the characters and the nature of the character dynamic between Utah and Bodhi and their relationship. Everything else about the movie is different. The narrative of the movie is different. While we do have surfing in the film, it is only a subset of the extreme sports that we deal with, including free-climbing, motocross, wing-suiting and so forth. The movie is being shot in 10 countries across the globe. Kathryn Bigelow’s original movie was really ahead of its time for 1991, when it came out."

    Dunno, this seems so far and away from Point Break why even bother calling it that? This is pretty ridiculous.

    I wonder if Vincent Klyn will have a cameo. He was a big time surfer for years. He's the guy that played "Fender Tremelo" in 'Cyborg'.

    I take it back! I don't know why I said it. Point Break is brilliant, I love it.

    Fuck the remake!

    Apparently this has touched a nerve with a lot of people and has spawned so much hate on social media there is now a petition to not release the movie.
    I like the original and certainly frown upon a remake but with all the classics that have been remade at this point and rumored to be remade in the near future
    this is the one that gets a petition to try and block it from releasing? Wow.

    Nothing will stop this flick from being released but the fact that people actually got traction to start a petition with a lot of signatures already is ridiculous.

    That's what I'm thinking... Who will attempt to play Anthony's character? Or will he make a cameo? Either way, this sounds like a big piece of poop!

    So they're terrorists, now? In the original, as I recall, they robbed banks to fund their extreme lifestyle.

    They didn't even really do it for that. They did it just for the thrill.

    Awesome flick, anyway. Keanu, Swayze, Gary Busey and Tank Girl herself Lori Petty. I feel like rewatching it now.
