Luke Bracey joins Gerard Butler in the remake of Point Break...

Well, it's still going ahead. The long-mooted remake of Point Break is now at the stage where it's putting its cast in place, and it's been announced that Luke Bracey is to take on one of the lead roles.

Bracey, recently seen in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (and previously of Home And Away vintage), is to play Johnny Utah - the role taken by Keanu Reeves in the original - in the new film. Gerard Butler has already been cast in the movie.

The new Point Break has been penned by Kurt Wimmer, who also put together the screenplay for Salt and the Total Recall remake - and Ericson Core (Invincible) is directing.

Foreign distribution rights for Point Break have sold quickly, and it's full steam ahead on the film, which is set to begin photography over the summer. It looks like it'll be released in 2015.
