Back in 1991, a movie called Point Break came out about a group of surfers, led by a character played by the awesome Patrick Swayze, who loved to rob banks when they were not hitting the waves. The movie also starred Keanu Reeves as the FBI agent named Johnny Utah, and the hot men, armed robbery, and surfing action combined together to make a really fun movie that was pretty successful at the box office. Now, over 20 years later, there is talk about a remake, and the first person who was on board with the remake was Gerard Butler, who would play Bodhi, the role that was originally played by the late great Patrick Swayze.
Point Break Remake To Begin Filming Next Month
Alcon Entertainment has been talking about a Point Break remake for at least three years, but things have been kind of slow getting it off the ground until recently. Now there is talk that this new version of the famous surfing movie will be updated into something a little more modern. However, there are rumors that the movie will not be about surfing, but possibly more geared toward extreme sports. The name Point Break was more than a title, but it is also a surfing term, so does this mean that the movie will have to have a new name since it may not be surfing oriented like its predecessor?
Gerard Butler was supposed to star in the Point Break remake, but now word has come down that Butler has backed out of the project, and some of his reasons include a scheduling issue and also creative differences. So now the search is on for a new Bodhi, and this person will have very big shoes to fill because Patrick Swayze was amazing in the first movie, and the chemistry he and Keanu Reeve had will be hard to duplicate.
