Ok, this is how I feel about this news…
Right, moving on…
Gerard Butler is tipped to play Bodhi (the role made famous by Patrick Swayze in the original) in the Point Break remake.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s in negotiations to play the ‘expert extreme-sports athlete and bank robber’.
The site is reporting that: “Butler will play Bodhi, an expert extreme-sports athlete who seeks nirvana through the conquest of a series of athletic feats such as surfing 100-foot waves.
“He saves Johnny Utah, the undercover FBI agent, and brings him into the fold of international criminals.”
Total Recall and Salt writer Kurt Wimmer has penned the script with invincible direct and Fast and Furious cinematographer Ericson Core directing and it will be set in the world of extreme sports rather than the surf scene of the original movie.
Asked about returning as Utah, Keanu Reeves told BBC 5 in December: ‘Absolutely not. It’s not my place. If they can find a way to do it that works out good, then God bless them.’
No release date for this yet nor has Utah been cast…
Oh, here’s a pic of Butler too:
