Ever since we heard about that failed sequel in 2008, we KNEW something like this was coming!
Yesterday, Alcon Entertainment announced plans to remake 1991 action flick Point Break, which starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.
The new Point Break will be released by Warner Bros, and it's getting fast tracked, so we can expect to hear a lot more about this soon.
Here's what Alcon co-founders/co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove had to say about the new movie:
"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. 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!"
We're REALLY not sure how feel about this. We LOVE Kathryn, and we're thinking maybe they should leave her cult classic ALONE!
Sounds like that won't happen though, because aside from the movie, Alcon has ALSO secured both television and gaming rights to Point Break. They're definitely looking to turn this one into a major franchise.
What do U think about a Point Break remake? How do U feel about all of Patrick Swayze's movies getting redone???
