Gerard Butler has apparently dropped out of the upcoming Point Break remake.
Butler was set to play the role of surfer Bodhi, the role which Patrick Swayze played to sheer brilliance in Kathryn Bigelow’s original movie in 1991.
It’s not quite clear why Butler has dropped out of the project, but some say that the shooting schedule conflicts with his role in Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen, whilst others cite creative differences.
The remake, set to be directed by Ericson Core, will still feature Luke Bracey as the ‘young, dumb and full of cum’ undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah, whilst Ray Winstone will take the role of Gary Busey’s character, Pappas.
Unlike Bigelow’s cult flick, which saw the film centre around a group of surfers, the remake will see many different extreme sports explored.
