Our dear Bodhi may be gone, but his legacy lives on as Alcon Entertainment prepares a remake of "Point Break," according to Deadline.
"Point Break" was released in 1991 and starred Keanu Reeves as Johnny Utah, a (very) young FBI agent who infiltrates a group of surfer dudes who moonlight as masked bank robbers known as the Ex-Presidents.
Soon, our young G-man is seduced by the rush of their adrenaline-charged activities (both legal and illegal) and freedom-loving lifestyle... and by the charisma of their zen philosopher leader, Bodhi (the late, great Patrick Swayze).
"Point Break" was directed by Kathryn Bigelow, long before she won an Oscar for "The Hurt Locker."
The "Point Break" remake will take place in the world of extreme sports, with another FBI agent called in to go undercover to investigate a series of crimes. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros., who's ordered Alcon to put this on the fast track, so expect director and cast announcements soon!
So the search is on for a Bodhi and Johnny Utah for the 21st century... got any actors in mind you think might be able to fill the sandals of Swayze and Reeves?
