Gerard Butler to Play Patrick Swayze's Role in "Point Break" Remake

Posted: January 9th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gerard Butler to Play Patrick SwayzeSubmit Comment
Gerard Butler is in final negotiations to star in the upcoming "Point Break" remake, which will begin shooting this summer with Ericson Core (Invincible) directing from a script by Kurt Wimmer (Total Recall, Law Abiding Citizen).

The movie is set in the international world of extreme sports. Butler will play Bodhi, the part Patrick Swayze played in the original movie. Bodhi is an expert extreme-sports athlete who saves Johnny Utah, an undercover FBI agent, and brings him into the fold of international criminals.

The part of Utah, which was played by Keanu Reeves in the original, is not cast yet.

Great choice, just not sure about his american accent.

Keanu Reeves might as well play the part again because even though it's been over 20 years, he hasn't aged a day. Which leads me to only 2 logical conclusions.

A: He's a robot.
B: He's an alien or sutin!

Also this film is unnecessary and stupid, what's the point of remaking a film if you can't use current technology to enhance the previous film in any way. Just put the money in to something else.

Although it is highly unlikely to happen, I won't be surprised if Keanu Reeves reprises his role again.

Swayze was a badass

As long as he doesn't use his native accent maybe.better thanh affleck or tatum

Wimmer sounds like a solid choice, but could've used better examples of his work like THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, THE RECRUIT, STREET KINGS, or even SALT!! Not mentioning the flop remake and a uneven confused revenge flick...LOL

Don't get me wrong, I think this remake is a good idea, but only if Bigelow would be involved/helmed...With THE HURT LOCKER & ZERO DARK THIRTY under her belt, she'd put more depth to the characters with more realistic stunts, albeit not really needed for this type of popcorn flick...

Gerard Butler proved himself more than once ,but I think this role is all wrong for him in the sense he doesn't have the calm, collected, surfer boy veneer of Swawze, who looked like a Buddhist burn-out much if not most of his life.

Butler would have been a better choice for Reeve's role, or even better, the role originally played by Gary Busey.

Then again, they're probably going for a Fast and Furious kind of film franchise, which I can understand given how much money those films made, but still, Butler doesn't have the looks of Walker and he can't play a meat-head like Vin, so I'm not really sure what direction they're trying to take this series.

Whatever the case, mink, I'd like to see them put a mullet on Butler.
minkowski writes:

A mullet on Butler would be hilarious.

And I said "series" because I've read the plan is to turn this new Point Break into a film franchise very similar to Fast and the Furious, upon which it is being modeled, IIRC.

I actually liked Butler in Chasing Mavericks. He won't be the same role as Patrick Swayze but I don't see him as being terrible in it.
