‘Point Break’: Meet The New Johnny Utah

25 February 2014 7:56 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Well, that Point Break remake that we’d all like to pretend isn’t happening…is still on the way, after all. Variety is reporting that the film, a redo of Kathryn Bigelow’s classic 1991 action film, has found its Johnny Utah to pit against Gerard Butler’s Bodhi. The original actors to play the roles were Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, respectively. This time around, the man standing on Utah’s surfboard will be Luke Bracey.

Bracey is a a little-known Australian actor who appeared in a soap opera down under called Home and Away. Stateside, his credits include Monte Carlo and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. He was on the recent shortlist to play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey, a role that would eventually go to Jamie Dornan. In Point Break, he’ll play Utah, an undercover agent that attempts to infiltrate a criminal gang lead by the enigmatic Bodhi. »

Fox’s Gotham Now Has Its Penguin, Alfred And Gordon’s Fiancee

11 February 2014 12:12 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is quickly moving forward with casting its eagerly anticipated series Gotham. This weekend, The O.C. and Southland star Ben McKenzie landed the role of James Gordon, prompting numerous jokes of a young Commissioner pushing off baddies by yelling, “Welcome to the G.C., bitch!” Now, four more (and relatively unknown) actors are joining the series’ principal cast. Most notably, Sean Pertwee (pictured above) is on board as Alfred, the trusted Wayne family butler, and Robin Lord Taylor will fill the shoes of Oswald Cobblepot, better known as The Penguin.

Sean Pertwee has quite a history, touring with the Royal Shakespeare Company back in the 1980s before turning in work as a gruff character actor in sci-fi flicks like Event Horizon, Soldier and Equilibrium. Recently, Pertwee lent his voice to video games Killzone, Fable II and their respective sequels. According to Variety, Pertwee’s Alfred Pennyworth will be “fiercely protective »

Gerard Butler in Talks to Lead Point Break Remake

9 January 2014 6:20 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Coming off the back of last year’s surprise success story, Olympus Has Fallen, Gerard Butler is now in final negotiations to jointly lead the upcoming remake of the 1991 cult classic, Point Break.

The project has been in the works for a few years now, and is now eyeing a summer shoot with Butler close to closing talks, THR reports.

Butler will play Bodhi, an expert extreme-sports athlete who seeks nirvana through the conquest of a series of athletic feats such as surfing 100-foot waves. He saves Johnny Utah, the undercover FBI agent, and brings him into the fold of international criminals.

Ericson Core, cinematographer on The Fast and the Furious and Daredevil, will be making his sophomore feature as a director, after making his debut back in 2006 with another sports movie, Invincible.

Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium, Total Recall) is responsible for the script, and the casting would see him reunite with Butler, »

Gerard Butler in talks for Point Break remake

9 January 2014 1:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor is to head up a remake of Kathryn Bigelow's action-packed tale of sun, surf, spirituality and terrorism

Gerard Butler on Olympus Has Fallen – video

Scottish actor Gerard Butler is reportedly in talks to take the lead villain role in a remake of Point Break, the 1991 action hit starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze and directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

The film sees Johnny Utah, played by Reeves, infiltrate a gang of bank robbers know as the Dead Presidents on account of the rubber masks they wear during hold-ups – and who also happen to be extreme sports nuts. They're led by Swayze's Bodhi, the role Butler is in talks to play. The original endures as an action classic, for its bold surf and skydive sequences, as well as the bromantic frisson between the leads. No casting details for the Utah role have been revealed.

The remake will be written by Kurt Wimmer, »

Surf’s Up, Dude. Gerard Butler to Star in Point Break Remake

8 January 2014 9:44 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

That “Point Break” remake has found its man. Well, one of them, anyway. “Olympus has Fallen” star Gerard Butler is said to be in final negotiations to play Bodhi, the role assayed by the late and great Patrick Swayze in the Kathryn Bigelow original. The script for the remake is from “Equilibrium’s” Kurt Wimmer, and will be set in the international world of extreme sports instead of California surfers. Like the 1991 movie, the plot of the remake will follow awesomely named FBI agent Johnny Utah as he infiltrates a group of bank robbers led by Bodhi. The producers still need someone to play Johnny Utah, along with his FBI handler, originally played by Gary Busey (back before he became known for being crazy). It’s too bad Paul Walker passed away, because imagine if they had cast him in the Keanu Reeves role. Walker has already played the character »
