Worst Idea of the Year Alert: Hollywood Wants to Remake Point Break

Hollywood is planning to remake the 1991 film Point Break, starring Keanu Reeves and the late Patrick Swayze. Widely regarded as one of the generation-defining films of the 1990's, Point Break has grown in popularity and achieved a cult-like following.

You can't remake perfection.

If the cast of Point Break were to have a conversation with the Studio Executives in charge of this project, it might go something like this:

In regards to the project overall, I would say this to Hollywood: "You crossed the line. People trusted you and they died. You gotta' go down." -Johnny Utah

On the required production efforts: "That would be a waste of time..." -Anthony Keidis, Warchild's gangmember

On the amount of time they have already wasted: “THREE MONTHS! THREE MONTHS!” -DEA Special Agent Deets

I get it Hollywood. You're trying to make a quick buck on a story that you think will resonate: "I know you want [it] so bad it's like acid in your mouth. But, not this time." -Bohdi

Regarding the careers of those involved: "You're cold because all of the blood is running out of your body... You're gonna be dead soon. I hope it was worth it." -Johnny Utah

The original Total Recall featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger is rated at 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, while the remake featuring Colin Farrell garnered only 30% on its way to becoming a box office flop.  

What score do you think the next Point Break is going to get on the Tomatometer? The original gets a 79%.

Via Con Dios, Brah!!
