Now Point Break gets a sequel
Pointless sequel time again. This time it is Point Break getting the second film treatment. Honestly, leave well enough alone! Jan De Bont is to direct the sequel, lucky him.
The sequel is to be called Point Break: Indo, says The Hollywood Reporter. The first one saw Keanu Reeves play an FBI agent, who infiltrates a group of surfers (lead by Patrick Swayze) suspected of being bank robbers.
No concrete word on the plot of the sequel yet, but it is to be written by W. Peter Iliff. He wrote the original which was directed by Kathryn Bigelow. I was a big fan of the original, but I don't have an appetite for a sequel at all. The one good thing is that it is the same writer, other than that I don't have high hopes. God forbid we should put the remakes on hold, and make an original film.
The plot may go something like this:
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.
