Gerard Butler is in final negotiations to star in a remake of the 1991 action movie ‘Point Break’. The original version starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze. If Butler accepts, he will be playing the Swayze role, Bodhi. The new film was written by Kurt Wimmer and will be directed by Ericson Core.
According to reports, the setting will change slightly to the world of extreme sports but the core plot of an FBI agent infiltrating a crime ring will remain the same as well as all the main characters.
The part of Jonny Utah, previously played by Keanu Reeves has yet to be cast.
The film is due to be shot this summer.
