‘Point Break’ Remake Confirmed, A new version of Point Break has been confirmed, sending fans into a frenzy of – above all – fear. 1991 classic, starring Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, follows a group of surfing bank robbers who are infiltrated by an FBI agent (Reeves).
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow The Hurt Locker, the original Point Break is now 20 years old and, apparently, studio bosses have decided its time to give the film a new luster.
Kurt Wimmer, who wrote the recent remake of Total Recall, has written the screenplay for the new Point Break.
An official statement of Alcon Entertainment, said: “The film is the fast track with the filmmakers to bring the project to the directors soon.”
For fans of Point Break’s own remake is pretty insulting, which regards the 20 th anniversary of the movie only makes it worse.
This is what people are saying on Twitter:
“Point Break official remake? This is the last straw, I think the world will end next year after all …”
“Point Break to be remade? Swayze is spinning in his grave.”
“Hollywood seems to be planning a lot of remakes recently felt. The erosion of originality in the film continues.”
“Somewhere, Bodhi, Johnny Utah, along with Danny Butterman Nick Angel and died a little.”
The new film is said to be “set in the international world of extreme sports.” This will involve an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal gang, however, the filmmakers did not reveal other details that will remain true to the original.
Alcon Co-CEO Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement: “Who does not love the original Kathryn Bigelow and his heart pounding, pure action and excitement? Take Kurt infuses the story and characters with new twists and adjustments. ”
The original film achieved cult status, partly due to the magnetic performance of Swayze, who played Bodhi, the too cool for school leader of a gang of surfing, and Reeves, Johnny Utah which got him a place in the heart of every teen girl.
