We’re not sure if it is because Keanu wasn’t asked or because he doesn’t think the remake is a good idea, but he’s revealed he won’t be reprising his role in Point Break.
When quizzed about whether he will be putting his undercover cop hat on again, the 49-year-old replied: “Absolutely not… It’s not my place… It sounds very exciting – but is it a good thing? I don’t know.”
However, producer Alan Kosov has described the project as “not a literal remake” so maybe Keanu just wasn’t wanted. Kosov describes the film as having “elements of the original and it’s not just surfing, it’s other kinds of extreme sports, but surfing is very, very prominent in the story.”
A sequel to the movie was originally conceived in 2008, where it was envisioned that action director Jan De Bont, who was responsible for Speed and Speed 2, would spearhead the flick.
Nothing came of that plan, so we will have to wait and see if Alan’s remake makes it to the big, or even small, screen anytime soon.
