Having gone quiet for several years since its first announcement, Alcon Entertainment’s Point Break remake looks to be up and running again with the announcement of a new director.
The man stepping behind the camera is a chap named Ericson Core, who might sound like Sony’s latest gadget, but is actually an advert director who made the step up to feature films with the Mark Wahlberg-starring Invincible .
Last time we heard anything about this one, producer Andrew Kosove was describing how the new version would be a significant departure from the original, rather than a straight remake.
“It’s not a literal remake of the original the way Footloose was,” explains Kosove. “It was identical to the original film. [ Our film ] has got elements of the original and it’s not just surfing, it’s other kinds of extreme sports, but surfing is very, very prominent in the story.”
