Keanu Reeves Definitely Won’t Be in the Point Break Remake

Keanu ReevesCurrently starring in 47 Ronin, the megabudget fantastical take on Japanese legend, Keanu Reeves is an actor who could potentially agree to be in just about any kind of movie, though he appears to always follow his personal tastes over doing anything strictly for a payday. One paycheck he is flat-out refusing is for Warner Bros. and Alcom Entertainment’s implausibly stupid remake of Kathryn Bigelow’s surfing/skydiving crime drama Point Break.

When asked by the BBC if he would be interested in getting involved with the remake, Reeves was adamant in his response: “Absolutely not. It’s not my place.” I can only imagine he gave the interviewer a stern duck-face as if he smelled his own shit beneath his fingernails. He said the project “sounds very exciting – but is it a good thing? I don’t know.”

But Keanu is such a nice guy, he did offer some form of non-damning encouragement. “If they can find a way to do it that works out good,” he said, “then God bless them.” So now Warner has both Reeves’ and God’s blessing behind them. The film can’t possibly fail, right? He went on to say that some films, such as The Wizard of Oz and Apocalypse Now, should all be tagged with a “no remake clause.”
