The Hollywood Reporter says Gerard Butler's ready to hang 10 (again) if his deal to star in the new Point Break goes through. THR says Butler is in negotiations to take on the character played by Patrick Swayze in the 1991 thriller directed by Kathryn Bigelow. Ericson Core is attached to direct the remake/re-invisioning from a script by Kurt Wimmer.
The new Point Break is set up at Alcon Entertainment and instead of surfing will be set in the world of extreme sports.
Butler recently finished up work on How to Train Your Dragon 2 and has Gods of Eqypt and London Has Fallen on his to-do list.
