POINT BREAK Remake Lands a Director
It's been awhile since we've heard any news on the Point Break remake being developed by Alcon Entertainment, but the production company has hired Invincible cinematographer Ericson Core to direct the film.
The new version is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring. I'm sure they're going to try to make this movie as extreme and over the top as possible. It'll either be ridiculously fun like the original or flat out stupid like most remakes end up being.
The original 1991 film is a classic, and a movie I can't help but watch whenever I come across it. It was directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. It will be interesting to see how this remake turns out, but I'm not getting my hopes up. This is one of those films that I can see leaving people disappointed.
