Extreme "Point Break" Remake



Alcon Entertainment’s new action-thriller "Point Break",  inspired by director Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 feature, has now started shooting principal photography, according to Alcon principals Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.


The new film is shooting on four continents, including North America, Europe, South America and Asia, with stunts performed by the world's top 'extreme sports' athletes:


Ericson Core ("Invincible") is directing from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer ("Salt"), with Edgar Ramírez ("Zero Dark Thirty") starring as 'Bodhi'.

"...in 'Point Break', a young FBI agent infiltrates an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists.


 "Deep undercover, and with his life in danger, he strives to prove they are the architects of the mind-boggling crimes that are devastating the world's financial markets..."


Extreme sports will include surfing 70-foot waves, snowboarding, wingsuit flying, free rock climbing and high-speed motorcycle stunts.


Renowned extreme athletes performing stunts in the film include surfers Makua Rothman, Billy Kemper, Brian Keaulana and Ahanu Tson-dru; snowboarders Lucas DeBari, Ralph Backstrom, Mitch Toelderer, Mike Basich and Xavier De La Rue; motorcyclists Riley Harper and Oakley Lehman; wingsuit stunt pilots Jeb Corliss, Jon Devore, Julian Boulle, Noah Bahnson and Mike Swanson; and free climber Chris Sharma, among others.
