"Point Break" Remake Gets Director and Plot Details

Posted: April 11th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Point Break" Remake Gets Director and Plot DetailsSubmit Comment
Alcon Entertainment has been talking about a sequel to Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 "Point Break" film, starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, since 2007. And now comes word that the company will instead develop a remake and has signed Ericson Core to direct the new movie.

Core last directed Mark Wahlberg's "Invincible" football film. He was also the cinematographer on such movies as "Fast and Furious" and Ben Affleck's "Daredevil." Other contenders for the job were "The Dark Knight" cinematographer Wally Pfister and Peter Iliff, who wrote the first movie.

Kurt Wimmer (Total Recall, Law Abiding Citizen) wrote the script for the "Point Break" remake, which will be set in the international world of extreme sports and will once again focus on an FBI agent infiltrating a crime ring. The plan is to begin shooting at the end of the year.

They already remade this movie in 2000. It was called "The fast and the furious" bad guys rob to enjoy free life style. Replace surfing with street racing. Under cover cop infiltrates group, falls in love with main baddies sister, seduced by the life style he lets the guy go at the end and throws away his career. Same f*cking movie, same monotone lead character. Pass.

The ringleader in this one will wear a George W. Bush mask and constantly be going into the wrong bank to rob.

And just to really kill this thread, do producers actually think people are asking "damn, I wish they would hurry up and remake point break...again" how many remake failures will it take? Friday the 13th=fail. Nightmare on elm st=fail. Conan=fail. Total recall=fail. Red dawn= fail. Soon to be Robocop= probably fail. Etc

Oh f*ck YOU HWOOD!!!!! Now Point Break?!?! You already ruined Total Recall, Evil Dead, Nightmare on Elm St., and now Point Break. Bunch of f*cking unoriginal vampires!!!!

When will the audience finally stand up and say they've had enough of this highway robbery? The next independent revolution can't happen soon enough. Where the f*ck is the next Tarantino or Harvey Weinstein that will make film creative and interesting again and not just about the bottom dollar.

Guess I missed the Naked Gun reboot thread. JESUS FUICKING CHRIST!!!! Naked gun without Leslie Nielsen is completely pointless just like Evil Dead without Bruce Campbell and Total Recall without Arnold. I can't believe Hwood is this f*cking stupid and lazy.

Apparently Hollywood needs a reboot or just a swift kick in the nuts. They have absolutely ZERO respect for the audience anymore. Nobody is demanding these remakes. They're just been rammed down our throats. Something must be done...fast.

I agree with Evil Dead Reboot, the original was a foul stupid film.

Let's watch them do a cheap re-hash that gives some chump the chance to fulfil his dreams of being a 'Director' whilst he ruins a truly great movie. I would love to see a really intelligent, well thought through sequel but what's the point in re-making an already great movie. Hollywood beware, just because you can do something to make a few bucks, doesn't mean you should. You're cheapening the whole industry with these dull re-makes that are bereft of any imagination.

@sadsack well spoken. Although a sequel wouldn't even feel right to me without Patrick

Im so glad that there were no 60s/70s re-makes when i was growing up.
Just The Curly Shuffle and Gilligans Island/The Monkeez reunion bits

There might have been a few cheesey, corny or just plain gahbage movies here and there in the 70s/80s but at least it was all original

Christ, the people on here bitched as much when the 21 Jump Street remake was announced, only to talk endlessly about how it's so much better than the television show, which I assumed the as I assume now, none of them had ever seen; similarly could be said about the Conan remake, and a few others. Think I even read someone state the Red Dawn remake was better than the original, although I'm at a total loss on that one.

People are going to bitch. Fact is, the original Bigelow film isn't that f*cking great. Not even close. It's decent, and enjoyable, but there's nor reason a remake couldn't also be decent and enjoyable in its own right. Not like the film is rooted in some ineffably magical period that can only be crudely aped by today's cinematic standards.

Maybe this franchise will join with Fast & Furious on the 8th or 9th film.

@SAC

The Evil Dead remake/semi-reboot was actually very well made and genuinely scary and gory as a motherf*cker. Mostly all makeup and practical effects and puppets were used, very little cgi except for a few compositing shots.
