Details on Point Break Remake

More action movie blasphemy on the way in the form of a ‘Point Break’ remake.  The movie will be directed by Ericson Core, a former advert director with one feature movie to his name (Invincible).  I’m not sure I liked the following synopsis telling of mini-cams following ‘extreme athletes’.  Is this some shaky-cam shit where you might as well not even bother looking at the screen?  Synopsis below via ScreenDaily:

The action centres on a former extreme sports superstar and FBI rookie who infiltrates a gang of itinerant thrill-seekers in a bid to crack a series of international robberies.

As the law enforcer’s investigation goes deeper he develops a strong tie with an enigmatic adventurer attempting to become the first man to complete the death-defying Quest Of Eight Challenges.

The producers will deploy high-resolution mini-cams to capture base jumping, surfing, motocross, snowboarding and skydiving sequences performed by leading extreme athletes.

The movie will shoot in March 2014 on location across Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, China and Malta.  Of course, ManlyMovie will keep you updated on whether or not this really will be a joke.
