Ericson Core (Invincible) will direct the feature film remake of the 1991 action-thriller Point Break for Alcon Entertainment, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEO’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

The new version of the film is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring. The filmmakers are keeping other plot points under wraps.

The Kathryn Bigelow original, starring Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze and Gary Busey, was produced by Largo Entertainment and released by Fox.

Known for his cinematography work on the box office success The Fast and the Furious for Universal Pictures and Daredevil for 20th Century Fox, Core made his directorial debut with Disney's Invincible starring Mark Wahlberg.

Kosove and Johnson will produce along with Michael DeLuca, John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor and Kurt Wimmer, who also wrote the screenplay. RGM Media principal Devesh Chetty and investor John McMurrick, Chairman of Marloss Entertainment, will serve as Executive Producers.

Principal photography is set to begin at the end of the year. Alcon will release through its output deal with Warner Bros.
