Teresa Palmer ("Warm Bodies") is in negotiations to join the "Point Break" remake at Alcon Entertainment.

Luke Bracey plays FBI agent Johnny Utah, taking over the Keanu Reeves role from the original. Palmer is playing his love interest in the reboot, originally portrayed by Lori Petty.

In the film, Utah infiltrates a criminal enterprise set within the extreme sports world. Edgar Ramirez and Ray Winstone are also onboard as Bodhi and Utah's FBI partner respectively.

Filming gets underway later this month in Germany, Austria, Italy, Mexico, Venezuela, French Polynesia, and India.

Ericson Core ("Invincible") is directing from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer ("Salt"). The film is targeting an August 7th 2015 release date.
