News that's not rad: Point Break is getting the reboot treatment

Sep. 12, 2011by:

You want this so bad it's like acid in your mouth. Wait...no, no I don't. Alcon Entertainment is going to reboot POINT BREAK.

Chris Taylor and Kurt Wimmer (SALT, LAW ABIDING CITIZEN) wrote the screenplay that will focus on the world of international extreme sports. This version will also include an undercover FBI agent going after a gang of bank robbing surfers. Will they change anything else? No clue. The rest of the plot point are being kept under wraps.

But why? Here are some explanations, sort of:

Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove co-founders and co-CEO's of Alcon Entertainment said this, Who doesnt love the Kathryn Bigelow original and its pure heart-pounding action and thrills? Kurts take infuses the story and characters with new twists and settings.

One of the producers on the project, Michael DeLuca added, Point Break wasnt 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!

Since you can't see me, I'm currently rolling my eyes. The original directed by Bigelow starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze is something of greatness. What would Gary Busey have to say about this?

Since they are remaking every Swayze movie, are they going to remake Black Dog too?

Only giving this a thumbs up so this will be noticed.

Captain Planet made a comment about Swayze spinning in his grave and it's getting thumbs up....His comment was awful. I put it in the negatives, but it moved up to being positive. What the hell people?!

Dude, this is the saddest thing I've ever seen. And I've been to Ethiopia.

May as well throw Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller in as the leads while we're at it.

Fuck this

It was already re-made as Fast and the Furious, which, though it launched a huge franchise that actually managed to improve in the 5th installment and grow beyond the Point Break formula, was still indicative of why this film should never be remade. You can't recapture the magic of Bodhi and surfer spirituality with the amazing run and gun action of Bigelow's original.

Our reliance on foreign oil is killing this country. At least now we can light our homes by harnessing the power of Patrick Swayze spinning in his grave.

You're try to piss me off with your comeback, but it's online and I don't know you so it doesn't. How sad and stupid that you think it will affect me.

The fact that you bothered to reply says a lot more than your tepid denial ever could. And if online insults possess no power, why did you hurl the first one? Checkmate, motherfucker.

I didn't hurl one. I just stated a fact. You made a joke about a dead person. That's a terrible thing to do. You were being a dick for doing that.

Really?

Hopefully in 6 weeks another shit-production company will announce that they are remaking this reboot. And both will be PG. It's going to fucking rule!

It's like Hollywood enjoys shitting in my mouth while I'm being held down. Some remakes/reboots I can handle but this is just shameful. I'm starting to believe there's a special place in Hell for studio execs that allow this to pass.

So they are going to replace the Keanu Reeves' exciting chase scene of Patrick Swayze through lots of house in L.A. with Parkour-style stuffs, eh? Nice (sarcasm required).

Wait, so DeLuca doesn't realize the greatness of Point Break is that it's not a great movie...*sigh* no wonder those of us trying to create original content just can't get a break lol

On the OTHER HAND.....

If the Meatball sub (Utah...Get me TWO!) makes a cameo & whoever the studio gets to play Utah still has the quarterback training to successfully punt a Rottweiler...then it might be cool.

You're cold because all the originality is running out of your body, Hollywood..

...your going to be dead soon. I hope it was worth it!

And who wants to bet that 1 of the new "twists" will be replacing Reagan, Carter, LBJ, & Mr. Nixon. (GET YOUR HANDS WHERE I CAN FUCKIN' SEE 'EM! THANK YOU!) w/ Bush Sr., Bush Jr., Clinton & Obama.

I'm gettin irritated

I am so frustrated by the repeated stories of remakes that I feel like Special Agent Johnny Utah firing his sidearm into the air, in a crowded area of L.A. while screaming all the while. Am I alone in this thought?

This is why television is becoming better than movies. Because of the better storytelling.

I mean how many shows do you seen being remade (with the exception of 'The Office').

BTW. Why is Hollywood trying to erase Patrick Swayze from the history books? first Red Dawn, Dirty Dancing, Now, Point Break. I'm pretty sure I've heard a Road House remake somewhere. Was Julie Newmar that bad?

Dead puppy

Alcon Entertainment basically just said that Point Break is a good movie and because of that it needs to be remade so that the Zen meditation of film can continue?
