no word on whether keanu or swayze would return but the original director is confirmed. It's being called Point Break Indo(takes place in indonesia) story synopsis:
Quote:


When Billy Dalton, military special ops and star surfer, is disqualified from the pro-surfing tour, he takes off for the coast of Bali looking for the perfect wave. While there he's recruited by a private security force who are trying to find a gang known as The Bush Administration, surfing outlaws and modern day pirates who work like The Ex-Presidents, a bank robbing crew from Malibu twenty years ago.

About as likely to be a hit as CARLITO's WAY 2 was.

The only reason I saw the original was because Concrete Blonde wrote a couple of songs for the soundtrack. I I won't be seeing the sequel.

Yawn. Unless it's rated NC-17 and the The Bush Administration is a female gang.

I think it's a lock that Swayze won't be returning. He supposedly has less than 6 months to live.

while his health problems would be reason #1 swayze's doctor came out publically and said he's been reacting extremely well to treatment and the doctor saw his chances of surviving at over 75%.

Hmmm, or did he slyly make it away with miracle fluke, and is out robbing more banks with new crew and new name, to finance his surfing hobby, “hello, hello. We are the ex-vice presidents, and we only need a few moments of your time. We’ve been screwing you over for few years so few more minutes, wont hurt.”

He was last seen wiping out on a huge typhoon/hurricane-produced wave, but the rest was left to our imagination.

Besides, the Swayze will never die. He will be one of the last things remaining on Earth, fighting Chuck Norris for supremacy.

I don't know what they're using in the sequel, but I doubt that they'll use Concrete Blonde. And since the CB songs were the only draw for me to see the original, I have no interest in seeing the sequel.

I loved the first Point Break. Not so interested in a part 2.

What's wrong with Patrick? I guess I'm really out of the loop.

Duh, my fault. I misread your original post. I thought you meant in the sequel.

Seriously? He's got pancreatic cancer. Apparently its one of the worst kinds.
Almost a 100% mortality rate with it.

I liked Point Break,too. But, wouldn't a sequel to Point Break have worked better before say...oh I don't know...1993? Besides, didn't all the members of the "Presidents" gang die?

Great! Thanks to seeing and participating in this thread, I had go dig up my old VHS copy of this flick. Took me about 20 minutes to locate it. I have a "couple-a-hundred" old VHS cassettes all over the house. I found my old copy of "The Commitments" as well. Been wanting to see that again!

Not a sequel but a reboot. Gerard Butler in Talks to Star in Point Break Remake. This was easy one of the best action movies in the 90s or all time for that matter. The original with Keanu & Swayze IMO was totally engaging and adrenalin non stop from start to end, superbly directed by K Bigelow. For me this movie also had Keanu & Swayze best performance. They were perfectly casted and believable. Let's cross fingers the reboot will do it some justice.

Wouldn't that be just dandy though "if" Bigelow could direct her own reboot. That would be very interesting and a 1st so why not?. My vote for Keanu's character could be Gordon-Levitt or Ryan Gosling.


Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen) is reportedly in final negotiations to star in the Point Break remake. We last reported on the new version of the 1991 bank-robbing surfers film (fun fact: directed by Kathryn Bigelow) when Ericson Core (Invincible) signed on to direct. Butler will be playing Bodhi, the role originally played by Patrick Swayze. Hit the jump for more. According to Heat Vision, Butler's Bodhi will be "an expert extreme sports athlete who also seeks to find nirvana through the conquest of a series of athletic feats such as surfing 100-waves. He saves Johnny Utah, the undercover FBI agent, and brings him into the fold of international criminals. The part of Utah is not cast."

Saw Point Break the year I graduated high school. Me and a bunch of guys went to go see it. You talk about pumped up and ready to party after we left the theater. Stupid kids.

Wouldn't have picked this one for a remake. Didn't pick Red Dawn either, though. But then, that's half the movies we get now, so why not... Can't wait to see CGI face masks and 600 foot tall CGI waves (with CGI surfers). And bigger explosions. And more guns. Maybe a Keanu cameo.

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

If they absolutely have to do a remake, then Busey's son better be playing Busey's part from the original movie.

Also, reboot shmeeboot. It's just laziness and greediness.

Interesting Bodhi choice...could work. If they treat this film in the same tone as "2 Guns" was recently (i.e. no CGI action) it could work.

The Johnny Utah conundrum is a big one. Who could/would/should fill that role? I'm kinda glad they went with someone like Butler for Bodhi because in no way does he resemble or remind me of Swayze, which is a good thing. The worst move would be to try and replicate Swayze and his performance in (what I feel) is his best role ever. Same kinda plays true for Johnny. Mimicking Keanu would be a bad idea, but that character calls for a certain type of image for sure (i.e. young/green, wide-eyed rook).

Two offerings for Johnny Utah...one serious and one left field...Ben Foster and James Franco. Foster is and INTENSE dude and can definitely pull of the seriousness of being a motivated new guy who is young, dumb, and full of...you know the rest.

Franco, while on the surface seems cra-cra, could be a great dark horse pick I think. As Heath Ledger fantastically pulled off a counter-image role so masterfully with his Joker, I think Franco could be a fantastic Johnny Utah. He can obviously pull off the quasi-surfer-dude side of that role, but I think there is some underlying intensity he has up his sleeve that could make a fantastic Utah.

Either way...as long as they some how find a way to keep it intense and reality based (no CGI anywhere!) I will be in.

Butler did fine in Chasing Mavericks, a damn fine recent surf flick as epic and inspiring as the original Karate Kid.

Speaking of surfing giant waves, this guy may have broken the world's record recently off the coast of Portugal. It's totally insane. Here's a brief video...

Gerald Butler is a fine actor but IMO totally wrong for Swayze's Bodhi. He doesn't look like the character nor does he resemble the character from the outside or inside. Just off the tip of my head Brad Pitt comes to mind as he can channel that "wild nature extreme outgoing all American dude" Swayze did so well in PB. Butler presents more an international image like Clive Owen. Both fine but not all American which Bodhi was.

Only a few top notch actors today has that "organic free spirit, wild nature" about them. B Pitt is one them, Colin Farrell has it. I can also def see Thor's Hemsworth a modern, bigger version of Swayze's Bodhi. Chris Evans could fit the shoes of that all American in Keanu's Johnny Utah.

Ooohh wait I got it, Taylor Lautner from the Twilight series. He's a spitting image of Keanu and still has that innocent youth Keanu had in the 90's. There you go, cast is set.
Lautner for Johnny Utah and either Pitt or Hemsworth for Bodhi. Either one could do it, both already have the natural blonde flowing locks like Swayze.

It all fell apart with Collin Farrell. Butler will be fine. See Chasing Mavericks.
