Edgar Ramirez to Star in Point Break Reboot

Variety is reporting that Edgar Ramirez is in negotiations to replace Gerard Butler in Alcon’s “Point Break” reboot.

Alcon has been looking for someone to take over the role of Bodhi — played by Patrick Swayze in the ’1991 original — after Butler exited the project over a scheduling conflict, and looks to have found his successor in the “Carlos” star.

Pic also stars Luke Bracey and Ray Winstone with Ericson Core directing.

The film will retain the original story of an FBI agent infiltrating a ring of criminals but will be set in the world of extreme sports.

Alcon’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce along with John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor and Kurt Wimmer.
