    'Point Break' to Be Remade by Alcon and Warner Bros.
    3:56 PM PDT 9/12/2011 by Gregg Kilday The Hollywood Reporter Excerpt:

    The original 1991 movie, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. Point Break, the 1991 thriller set against the world of surfing, is getting an extreme-sports make-over, courtesy of Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros.
    In the original film, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, Keanu Reeves starred as Johnny Utah, an undercover FBI agent looking for a gang of bank robbers, led by Patrick Swayze’s Bodhi, amid the Southern California surfing scene.

    Hey man, I'm disturbed that they're working on remaking the original Highlander movie.

    well....

    the movie (not Highlander) was not really all that great...(though Reeves was pretty good in the part, but what's his name was better...)

    I'm disturbed too... I'm not going to to into my usual anti-remake/sequel rant because you all have read it before.
    Bill, I agree, there can be only ONE.

    Geez why not go for broke and start remaking all the Bond movies

    In answer to the "Where will they find someone with as little talent as Reeves"

    They have the same emotional range too.

    If it isn't going to be about surfing, are they going to keep the title? If they don't keep the title, is it really a remake with such a generic plot, one that Vin Diesel did about 10 years ago in xXx.

    LOL... Obviously those kids aren't tween or teen girls. It's Robert Pattinson from the Twilight movies. How he missed out on the Oscar nominations, I'll never figure out...
