'New Girl' recap: I'm Okay, You're Okay (Jk, We're All Broken Up)

15 April 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Whenever New Girl has had a big plot point in, it’s always been interesting how they handle — or don’t — the fallout in the next episode. A few examples: Jess and Nick’s first kiss in “Cooler” was followed by the Indian speed-dating shenanigans of “Table 34″; the roomfriends were doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well in “Virgins,” but “Winston’s Birthday” felt a bit like a digression; and it’s probably best if we don’t dwell too much on “Exes” (aside from Adam Brody’s dreaminess therein) because it had the misfortune to air in »

Why Ray Winstone Is Perfect for That 'Point Break' Remake (Clips)

9 April 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Brit character actor Ray Winstone is in talks to star in the tussled-about "Point Break" remake as FBI agent Angelo Pappas, a role Gary Busey immortalized in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 homoerotic cult classic about bank-robbing surfers. He'll be joining Gerard Butler, currently cast as wave-chasing, surfer-gang leader Bodhi (originally played by Patrick Swayze). Aussie hunk Luke Bracey will star opposite Butler and Winstone as FBI rookie Johnny Utah (played Keanu Reeves in Bigelow's film). Winstone induced shivers in 1999 as a walking picture of paternal evil in Tim Roth's indie "The War Zone," but you've also seen him skulking along the fringes of many mainstream and indie films, including "The Departed," "Cold Mountain," "Hugo," "Sexy Beast" and as a descendent of Cain in "Noah."  Across the pond, he's been a film and TV mainstay for decades, with two BAFTA noms under his belt, accolades from the British Independent Film Awards »

Five rules for the Point Break remake

Point Break remake drives fans to breaking point

Ray Winstone is in talks for the controversial upcoming remake of 90s action romp Point Break, according to Variety. The 57-year-old British actor, fresh from a turn as main villain Tubal-Cain in Darren Aronofsky's hit biblical epic Noah, looks set to play FBI agent Angelo Pappas in the new version of Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 cult favourite.

Gary Busey played the more experienced partner of Keanu Reeves' rookie agent Johnny Utah in the original. Pappas is the FBI man who first posits the theory that the film's central gang of bank robbers, The Ex-Presidents, are surfers. Reeves' Utah is then sent to infiltrate the Los Angeles surf scene, »

Ray Winstone joins Gerard Butler in Point Break remake

7 April 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ray Winstone is in line to star in the remake of Point Break.

The actor, who can currently be seen in Noah, will play Luke Bracey's partner in the reboot which also has Gerard Butler attached.

Bracey will play Johnny Utah, the role filled by Keanu Reeves in the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow-directed movie, with Winstone having Gary Busey's original part.

Butler will take on the role of Bodhi (played by Patrick Swayze in the original), who seeks nirvana by living on the edge, and is responsible for inducting the undercover agent Utah into the criminal circle.

Ericson Core is directing, while The Fast and the Furious's Kurt Wimmer has written the script for Daredevil cinematographer Core.

Ray Winstone Takes Gary Busey Role in 'Point Break' Remake

7 April 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ray Winstone is in talks to star in the Point Break remake, portraying the veteran FBI partner of Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey).

Gary Busey portrayed Utah's partner Pappas in the original 1991 action-thriller Point Break, although it isn't clear if the character will retain the same name. Gerard Butler is starring as Bodhi in the remake, which follows Johnny Utah as he infiltrates a criminal organization in the world of extreme sports. The original, which starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, was set in the surfing world.

Ericson Core (Invincible) is directing from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer (Total Recall reboot). The writer is also producing alongside Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, John Baldecchi and Chris Taylor. It isn't known when production will get under way.

Ray Winstone can currently be seen in Noah, and he next stars in The Gunman.

‘Point Break’ Remake Details; Cast Adds Ray Winstone

7 April 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s not just the 1980s that are coming back (see: recent news of a Goonies sequel and Gremlins remake), the 1990s may be following after them. Case in point, a new Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World, is releasing in 2015, where it looks to be joined by the remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 cult action/thriller Point Break.

Bigelow’s film stars a young Keanu Reeves and the late Patrick Swayze as, respectively, a federal agent and the adrenaline-junkie surfer who is under investigation for his possible ties to a band of bank-robbers called the Ex-Presidents, whose calling card are their rubber masks of U.S. political figures like Richard Nixon and Ronal Reagan. Swayze’s original role will be played by Gerard ...

Ray Winstone is Your Gary Busey in 'Point Break' Remake

7 April 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you thought it would never actually happen when it was announced Luke Bracey was going to fill the shoes once occupied by Keanu Reeves in a remake of Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break well, guess again. Not only is the movie moving forward with Ericson Core, longtime cinematographer on films such as Daredevil and The Fast and the Furious, directing and Gerard Butler co-starring, now Ray Winstone has joined the cast (via Variety) and will play elder to Bracey's Johnny Utah. Written by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Total Recall), the film will follow a similar plot line as the first with Bracey as Johnny Utah, an FBI agent assigned to infiltrate a gang of thieves who share a common interest in extreme sports. Butler plays Bodhi, the leader of the gang and role originally played by Patrick Swayze, and Winstone will play Pappas, the role played by Gary Busey in the 1991 original. »

‘Point Break’ Producer Talks Up The High-Octane Remake

7 April 2014 3:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s a new Point Break movie coming, if you hadn’t heard. The original movie, which is now 23 years old (blimey), will be rehashed for a 2015 release by director Ericson Core, and it will star Gerard Butler as the Patrick Swayze character Bodhi and Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Johnny Utah.

Producer Broderick Johnson has been speaking to Collider about the film and the comparison to the much loved original.

“The script only shares in common with the original the characters and the nature of the character dynamic between Utah and Bodhi and their relationship,” says Johnson. “Everything else about the movie is different. The narrative of the movie is different.”

“While we do have surfing in the film, it is only a subset of the extreme sports that we deal with, including free-climbing, motocross, wing-suiting and so forth. The movie is being shot in 10 countries across the globe. »

Producers Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove Talk Point Break Remake; Reveal Second Unit Is Already Filming and It’s Being Shot in 10 Countries

5 April 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The 1991 action-crime thriller Point Break, starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, is currently in the midst of getting the remake treatment.  Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, the original film followed FBI Agent Johnny Utah (Reeves), as he went undercover and formed a friendship with Bodhi (Swayze), the leader of a group of surfers that were suspected of robbing banks.

Kosove gave on update on the status of the Point Break remake being directed by Ericson Core.  The two men talked about how they’re already well underway with second unit photography, that they’re shooting a variety of extreme sports (of which surfing is only one subset) in 10 countries across the globe, that it’s the greatest footage they’ve ever gotten at Alcon, how the »

Ranking the Top Action Stars, from McQueen to Neeson

27 March 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Grantland's Bill Simmons should get a bonus for what will likely be one of their most viral stories, "The Action Hero Championship Belt," his ranking of the top action stars since the first prototype of the modern model, Steve McQueen. Simmons cleverly narrows his focus to define what an action star is: see how he deftly eliminates mere movie actors who play in action movies and sideswipes westerns, although Clint Eastwood has his day. Tom Cruise (He Who Does His Own Stunts, to the terror of directors like John Woo) deserves better, along with Charles "Death Wish" Bronson, who only rates challenger status, along with Bruce Lee, Steven Seagal, Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, Keanu Reeves and Jean-Claude Van Damme: Rule No. 1: Over everything else, I need to believe our hero can kick everyone’s ass, in any conceivable situation, at any given time. And he needs to believe this, »

24 Dos and Don'ts You Learned From Dirty Dancing

25 March 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been 27 years since the original Dirty Dancing hit theaters in 1987, but the cult classic still has plenty of staying power thanks to some quotable lines, a seriously awesome '60s soundtrack, and some out-of-control dance scenes. With actress Jennifer Grey celebrating her 54th birthday on Wednesday, we're taking a look back at the iconic movie that made people dream of a sexy stranger who'd teach them how to dance, lift them high in the air, and stand up to anyone who tried to put them in the corner. (Yes? No? Just us?) In honor of Jennifer's birthday and the memorable performance from the late Patrick Swayze, take a look at 24 dos and don'ts inspired by Dirty Dancing.

'John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown' preview: Fighting 'fugly' Patrick Swayze in drag

22 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Looking back on his colorful life thus far for laughs, John Leguizamo's "Ghetto Klown" is packed to the gills with stories about the actor's early life in Queens and his eventual stardom.

One such story in the special, a filmed version of his 2011 one-man Broadway show premiering on HBO on Saturday (March 22), finds Leguizamo recounting a dust-up with Patrick Swayze on the set of the campy drag classic "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar."

In the Nsfw preview clip above, Leguizamo hilariously retells the incident that led to a brawl between the two actors -- who were dressed in their character's drag at the time. It creates quite an amusing image, to say the least.

"John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown" premieres on Saturday, March 22 at 10 p.m. Et/Pt on HBO. »

An A-z of the 90s films that Generation Y grew up with

20 March 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The 90s will go down in history as the decade that brought us Titanic. But it also introduced us to Quentin Tarantino and The Matrix. And there was at least one film that began with a Z

A is for Aladdin

Starting with Cadillac Man and ending with Bicentennial Man, Robin Williams made 27 films over the course of the 90s. That's a whole spectrum of Robin Williamses: kooky (Mrs Doubtfire), mournful (What Dreams May Come), creepy (Jack) and annoying (again, Bicentennial Man). Yet the most 90s Robin Williams performance of all is his turn as the Genie in Disney's Aladdin, in which he is allowed to blabber and gibber and yelp and riff about nothing at a mile a minute for ages. It's brilliant, but exhausting. Remember, this film had two sound editors. Pray for them.

B is for The Blair Witch Project

The 10 Most Fabulous Best Supporting Actress Oscar Wins

28 February 2014 8:15 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m whipped into a cackling fugue state about the Oscars. I’m in love with the damn Oscars. In fact, I’m suspicious of people who don’t love the Oscars. And here we are with my favorite Oscar countdown to date: the 10 most fabulous Best Supporting Actress-winning performances. Keep in mind this isn’t the same thing as the 10 best Best Supporting Actress performances. I wrote that list years ago and declared Sandy Dennis, Patty Duke, Cloris Leachman, Meryl Streep, and Kim Hunter the supreme supporting ladies. My feelings have not changed. But it’s time to honor the fabulous performances, the supporting actresses who bring whizzbang, panache, sexual superiority, and fun to an occasionally dour category. Here are the 10 most fab winners of my favorite Oscar.

Aussie actor Luke Bracey (Home and Away, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) has joined the cast of Alcon Entertainment's Point Break remake, where he's set to play the Keanu Reeves role of FBI agent Johnny Utah.

Bracey will star alongside Gerard Butler (300, Olympus Has Fallen), who will take on the Patrick Swayze role of Bodhi in the upcoming film which is set to be directed by cinematographer Ericson Core (Daredevil, The Fast and the Furious).

Point Break will retain much of the same plot as the Kathryn Bigelow-helmed original, although it will shift the action from the California surf scene to the world of extreme sports.
