POINT BREAK is Next 80s Film to Be Remade

Be prepared…POINT BREAK is getting remade.

Yup…adding to the long list of 80s remakes over the past few years will be the Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze extreme sports classic.

Chris Taylor and Kurt Wimmer, who wrote SALT and LAW ABIDING CITIZEN, wrote the screenplay.  All plot points are being kept a secret, except for the fact that there will now be an undercover FBI agent going after a gang of bank robbing surfers.

Okay then…

Co-founders of Alcon Entertainment, Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, said of the project,

“Who doesn’t love the Kathryn Bigelow original and its pure heart-pounding action and thrills? Kurt’s take infuses the story and characters with new twists and settings.”

Producer Michael DeLuca added, “POINT BREAK wasn’t just a film, it was a Zen meditation on testosterone fueled action and manhood in the late 20th century and we hope to create the same for the young 21st!”

A Zen meditation? I think this would be the point where I’d look at the person who just told me all this, shake my head, and walk away.

Also an interesting tidbit…this is the third Patrick Swayze based remake in production behind the GHOST musical and DIRTY DANCING.

Thoughts?  Coincidence or cashing in?
