‘Point Break’ to Get ‘Extreme’ Remake

Point Break Reamke
20th Century Fox

‘Point Break,’ Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 caper flick boasted Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey, all at the heights of their ass-kicking powers, plus surfing, skydiving, bank-robbing and other assorted dare-deviling. In other words, it was one extreme flick.

Nevertheless, Warner Brothers is planning to remake the film and try to make it even more exciting, by setting the tale of FBI infiltration of a criminal gang in the world of extreme sports.

“‘Point Break’ wasn’t just a film,” explains Michael DeLuca, who will producing the remake. “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!”

Predictably, fans of the original 1991 film haven’t taken this news well, and Twitter lit up with denunciations of the project once it was announced Monday.

The remake is still in the early stages of development, but you can check out the original ‘Point Break’ trailer below:
