Ray Winstone On For Point Break Remake
He's the new Gary Busey!

Ray-Winstone-On-For-Point-Break

With director Ericson Core long in place, the Point Break remake is slowly starting to gather the performers it needs in its attempt to top the original’s loopy cult action appeal. Luke Bracey is already set as Johnny Utah, and the production has now rounded up a partner for the young FBI agent in Ray Winstone.

The Noah actor will be tasked with inhabiting a character named – assuming they’re sticking with original film’s titles for everyone – Pappas and famously played by Gary Busey in Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 offering. He’ll be part of the team chasing down a gang of extreme sports enthusiasts who are pulling off big crimes and led by Bodhi (Gerard Butler). With Bracey’s Utah ordered to infiltrate the gang and take them down from within, things get more complicated from there.

Core, whose name should really just be spoken by a gravel-gargling Trailer Bloke whenever it’s mentioned, is gearing up to shoot this summer, working from Kurt Wimmer’s script. The film should be out next year.

Winstone, on screens now causing trouble for Russell Crowe in Darren Aronofsky’s latest, will be seen in The Gunman alongside Sean Penn and in political infidelity drama Zipper.
