Alcon Entertainment has announced plans to remake Point Break, Deadline reports. The 1991 blockbuster, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, starred Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent tasked with infiltrating a gang of bank-robbing surfers (Or was it surfing bank-robbers? I forget.) led by a Zen Buddhist played by Patrick Swayze. The new version will be set in the “world of international extreme sports,” because that’s what all the kids are into these days, but will otherwise adhere to the plot of the original. Also, it will be awful.
Michael DeLuca, John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor, Kurt Wimmer and Alcon CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce the film from a script penned by Wimmer. A director will be chosen soon.
