Surprising sequel news surfaced this week via IESB.net that answers the question whether a film can totally suck yet be totally awesome at the same time.
Details have leaked regarding an upcoming Point Break sequel. The film will be called Point Break Indo, and it will take place in Indonesia. No cast has been set, but the producers have been in contact with both Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.
Considering Swayze’s recent health problems and Reeves recent career problems, it’s still up in the air whether either will reprise their roles. (Although, didn’t Bodhi die in a 20-foot wave crash at the end of the first?)
According to IESB.net, here’s the plot synopsis:
When Billy Dalton, military special ops and star surfer, is disqualified from the pro-surfing tour, he takes off for the coast of Bali looking for the perfect wave. While there he’s recruited by a private security force who are trying to find a gang known as The Bush Administration, surfing outlaws and modern day pirates who work like “The Ex-Presidents,” a bank robbing crew from Malibu twenty years ago.
Action veteran Jan de Bont is set to direct, and the production company has stated that the film will include “the most extreme action stunts ever caught on camera.”
See what I mean? Total suck and total awesome in one package. Now all we need is Chuck Norris to make an appearance, and we’ll be golden.
