Cinematographer turned filmmaker Ericson Core (“Invincible”) has been set to direct the remake of 1991 cult classic “Point Break” for Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures.
Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow helmed the original which starred Keanu Reeves as an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a group of surfers (led by Patrick Swayze) who have pulled off a series of bank robberies.
The remake shifts the setting from surfing to the world of international extreme sports.
Broderick Johnson, Andrew Kosove, Michael De Luca, John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor and Kurt Wimmer will produce.
Wimmer (“Salt,” “Law Abiding Citizen”) also penned the script, and shooting begins at the end of the year.
