Another Patrick Swayze movie remake: Point Break

Alcon Entertainment released a statement about planning to remake Point Break. This is the second remake of a movie that actor Patrick Swayze starred in. The first one was the famous “Dirty Dancing”. Do people miss the late Hollywood star, or the producers just ran out of ideas?

If you watch closely, you might just get the Hollywood trends. After all, they are not that hard to follow. A decade ago, Harry Potter started the fantasy movie trend, which gave birth to vampire movie ideas, talking lions and mysterious creatures movie ideas, and witchcraft movie ideas. A couple of years ago, if not more, every respectable producer in Hollywood started creating sequels, franchises and sagas. This type of films, financially speaking, assure long term winnings, as people are not content with watching an action that has no ending. And we don’t have to mention too many movies to prove our point: the Twilight Saga, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Pirates of the Caribbean, TRON, Thor, The Priest, and so on.

Now, everybody wants to reboot old movies. It’s like a rising appetite for vintage. Leaving the trend aside, “Point Break” is the second Patrick Swayze movie to be given a second chance (not that it needed it) to hit the big screen. In early August, Lionsgate announced they will reboot “Dirty Dancing”. The idea hit a wall of protest from the fans of the original movie, which don’t believe the new one could rise to the expectations.

Point Break was released in 1991 and starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. Swayze was the head of a band of robbers who stole money from the banks while wearing masks of the U.S presidents. Reeves plays the agent that tries to get them. In order to do that, he goes undercover as a new surfer on the beach he found out the gang was hanging out. However, his justice and moral duty starts shaking once he gets to know Bodhi (Swayze) and his visionary lifestyle. “Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true”, was one of Bodhi’s famous quotes.

The new script, written by Kurt Wimmer, is reportedly very similar to the original one. So far, there hasn’t been set a release date, nor a director for the remake.

  1. It’s ripe for a remake.
    Shia LaBeouf, Penn Badgley or Chace Crawford as FBI Agent Johnny Utah
    Chad Michael Murray as Bodhi
    Simon Pegg or Eddie Izzard as FBI Agent Angelo Pappas
    Mischa Barton, Sophia Bush, Kat Dennings or Leighton Meester as Tyler Endicott

    There shouldn’t be a scene in the remake where Utah is beaten up by a naked woman.
    Utah should have be a hardcore badass like Liam Neeson in Taken.
    They must include the below quote from the original film in the remake:
    “lt’s time for lunch. Around that corner is a sandwich shop. They sell meatball sandwiches. Best l’ve ever tasted. Would you go get me two? Come on, partner. Two. Thank you. Utah! Get me two!”
