Keanu Reeves has dismissed any chance of starring in a Point Break remake


Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 December, 2013 - When asked by BBC Radio 5 Live if he would be involved in a potential update of the 1991 action classic, he said: "Absolutely not. It's not my place." Point Break starred Reeves as an FBI agent who goes undercover within a group of surfers while seeking a criminal gang.

Patrick Swayze and Gary Busey also starred in the film, which became one of the most popular action movies of the 1990s. A sequel had been rumored for many years until Swayze's death in 2009. However, Alcon Entertainment announced remake plans in 2011.

"It's not a literal remake of the original the way Footloose was," producer Andrew Kosove told Indiewire earlier this year. Kosove added that the new version would have "elements of the original and it's not just surfing, it's other kinds of extreme sports, but surfing is very, very prominent in the story."
