Gerard Butler Drops Out of "Point Break" Remake

Posted: May 7th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gerard Butler Drops Out of "Point Break" RemakeSubmit Comment
Everything has been going smooth for the upcoming "Point Break" remake. First Gerard Butler signed on to play Bodhi, the role originally played by Patrick Swayze. Then Luke Bracey boarded the project as Johnny Utah, the role previously played by Keanu Reeves. And then finally, Ray Winstone (Noah) joined as Utah's partner, played by Gary Busey in the 1991 original.

There was a script, written by Kurt Wimmer (Law Abiding Citizen) and a director, Ericson Core (Invincible). The plan has been to begin shooting in June. But now comes word that Butler has decided to exit the project due to a scheduling conflict and creative differences.

Producers are still intent on shooting in June and will recast the part in the coming weeks.

I wish he could elaborate about his "creative differences" which should be interesting to hear.

Good choice. It's gonna be a sh*tty remake anyway.

@bad I agree, smart choice indeed. I watched that other surf movie he was in called riding mavericks. He was not bad in it and it was an interesting story. He still lacks something though as an actor. I think he has potential to do something good.

He would have been about as good a choice as they're going to get, methinks, but really, the smart thing here would be to make a more Fast and Furious type of movie with hot young people, if they're interested in making some money, and not focus on a guy hwo hit his high note with Snyder's sword and sandals salute to Greek homoeroticism. The fact Kurt Wimmer is scribing the script doesn't add much confidence, either.

The must've meant that the script was a piece of sh*t. Too bad he didn't have "creative differences" with some of the other movies he signed his name to and actually starred in. I mean, he had a f*cking movie with Katheryn Hiegl ... I'm surprised he didn't want to throw up the entire time.

Billy- he's not a bad actor. I'd rather pay to see him in London has Fallen.

@bad yeah I agree, he was good in Olympus has fallen. That revenge film he did with Jamie fox was good where he played the bad guy. I can't remember the name but he was pretty decent in that.
