While there are many out there who are still wondering why they’re remaking Point Break, the film continues to come together. The latest news is that Ray Winstone has signed up for the movies, according to Variety.
Winstone joins Luke Bracey and Gerard Butler in the movie, with Bracey as Johnny Utah, a young FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a crime syndicate who are involved in the world of international extreme sports. Butler will play Bodhi, who’s involved in the crimes and whose influence ends up with Utah questioning what side he should be on.
Winstone is set to be Bracey’s older, veteran partner, as played by Gary Busey in the original.
Ericson Core (Invincible) is directing from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer’s. Principal photography is set to begin early this summer.
