Point Break, the Kathryn Bigelow action film starring Keanu Reeves and the late, great Patrick Swayze, has been in the remake machine for a few years now, seemingly since Bigelow got back on the map in a huge way with The Hurt Locker.
It now seems that the remake machine has moved on to phase two of the process, having gotten a director for the remake/reboot/who gives a damn? in the form of Ericson Core, a man whose name would probably would have me making Norwegian sit-up jokes if the A.V. Club hadn’t beaten me to that shit.
Core’s only helming credit thus far is the Mark Wahlberg film Invincible, so…
Yeah. Point Break‘s being remade. And it’s gonna be…existing.
