A Point Break Sequel Is Coming

“Patriot Games” scripter Peter Iliff is to write and direct “Point Break 2,” a 20 years later sequel to the surfing crime thriller that he co-wrote in 1987 and was a hit for Largo Entertainment in 1991 reports Variety.

The $20 million-$30 million new film will be set in Southeast Asia and uncover the fate of the surfers’ leader Bodhi who was supposedly killed by a giant wave.

Action follows a surfer-turned-SEAL on the trail of a criminal gang. Locations being scouted include Indonesia and Singapore, and production schedule sees lensing starting by the end of current year with delivery for late 2008.
