Word on the street is Ray Winstone is set to play the part of Jonny Utah’s veteran cop partner Angelo Pappas in the re-make of Point Break.
Yes, we can’t quite believe it either. The 56-year-old movie hardman from Hackney is going to be stepping into Gary Busey’s shoes for the remake set to be on our screens next year, according to The Guardian.
He will star alongside Gerard Butler (fast becoming typecast as the Hollywood surfer) who will play Bodhi and Australian actor Luke Bracey as Jonny Utah.
“Listen you snot nose little shit, I was taking shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crapping in your hands and rubbing it on your face.“
Why on earth anyone needs to remake such an epic classic is a mystery to us. Even Keanu Reeves agrees. When asked if he would star in the remake, his response was “absolutely not”. Damn straight Keanu.
No one can possibly fill the boots of Busey when it comes to such classic lines as: “Listen you snot nose little shit, I was taking shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crapping in your hands and rubbing it on your face.“
Well, Big W is certainly going to try.
