After a hiccup where Gerard Butler left and was swiftly replaced by Edgar Ramirez, the remake of Point Break is back on track with Variety reporting that Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, I Am Number Four) is in talks to join the cast as the female lead.
Luke Bracey is already onboard as FBI agent Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves in the earlier version), who is assigned to infiltrate a criminal gang who are part of the extreme sports world. Ramirez (previous Patrick Swayze) is head of the gang, Bodhi, while Ray Winstone is set to be Utah’s veteran FBI partner.
Teresa Palmer meanwhile is in negotiations to be Johnny Utah’s love interest, taking over the role that was originally portrayed by Lori Petty in the original version.
Ericson Core (Invincible) is directing from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Total Recall). The film is due out August 7th, 2015.
