100% Pure Adrenaline!

Get your hoverboards out, kids, the future is now! And if your idea of the future is one where Hollywood is completely out of new ideas, then you're in luck!

Coming soon to an IMAX near you: Point Break! Hells to the yeah, Hollywood bigshots have greenlighted a remake of the Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze surfing and sky diving and bank robbing action epic!! Oh man, there are not enough exclamation points in the world to contain my excitement!!!

The new version will be set "in the world of international extreme sports" (obviously) and will be scripted by Kurt Wimmer who wrote Salt (barf) and Ultraviolet (double barf) and the upcoming Total Recall remake (wait, whut?)! So you just know this will be a heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat, deadly game of cat-and-mouse! (And why are games of cat-and-mouse always "deadly"?! Time for some new adjectives, movie trailer guys!)

Hollywood bigshot Michael DeLuca had this to say: "Point Break wasn't just a film, it was a Zen meditation on testosterone fueled action and manhood in the late 20th century and we hope to create the same for the young 21st!" Can't argue with that! (You can't! I dare you to even try!)

No director has been attached (Hollywood lingo), but it will surely be someone "hot"! I am thinking Kathryn Bigelow, because she won a crater-full of awards with her heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat, deadly game of cat-and-mouse movie The Hurt Locker! She should totally direct this!

Also! Casting choices! (If I were a Hollywood bigshot!) Bradley Cooper as Keanu Reeves' Johnny Utah! Mos Def as Patrick Swayze's Bodhi! Megan Fox as Lori Petty's Tyler! Jake Busey as Gary Busey's grizzled FBI guy! Kid Rock as Anthony Red-Hot-Chili-Pepper Kiedis' whatever-that-guy's-name-was! The Jonas Brothers as Bodhi's crew! Casting choices!

I can't wait til next summer or whenever this comes out!
