Edgar Ramirez Replaces Gerard Butler In ‘Point Break’ Remake
  |  @   |  

Just a quick update on the remake of the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow action flick Point Break.

Recently it was reported that Gerard Butler, who was set to play the same role Patrick Swayze played in the original, had decided to exit the project due to scheduling conflicts and and creative differences.

Now comes word that Edgar Ramirez has entered into negotiations to take on the role and replace Butler.

Ramirez has appeared in titles such as Domino, The Bourne Ultimatum, Vantage Point, Wrath of the Titans, and Carlos, which scored him a Golden Globe nomination.

The casting comes quickly as Alcon Entertainment wanted to stay on course for a June start date that would begin a shoot that’s expected to last multiple months and travel to multiple international locations.

Point Break also stars Luke Bracey and Ray Winstone, and will be directed by Ericson Core.
