Alcon Entertainment is set to start principle photography on their remake of Kathryn Bigelow's ('Hurt Locker', 'Zero Dark Thirty') 1991 action packed heist film 'Point Break' early this summer. The original starred Keanu Reeves as undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah and Patrick Swayze as Bodhi, the leader of an adrenaline fueled group of surfing, sky-diving bank robbers. Lori Petty ('A League of Their Own') and Gary Busey round out the supporting cast. The film had a strong turn in the box office and has an impressive cult following.

Earlier this month it was announced that Gerard Butler ('300', 'Olympus Has Fallen') had been tapped for the Bodhi character in the long rumored remake. It was recently announced by Alcon Entertainment's CEO's that Johnny Utah will be played by Luke Bracey, Cobra Commander in John M. Chu's 'GI Joe: Retaliation'. The screenplay will be written by Kurt Wimmer ('Law Abiding Citizen', 'The Thomas Crown Affair') and directed by cinematographer turned director Ericson Core ('Invincible', 'The Fast and the Furious'). It isn't clear exactly how close to Rick King and W. Peter Iliff's original script the remake will be.

Alcon Entertainment acquired the rights from RGM Media who will be executive producing the project while Warner Bros. will handle the distribution.
