Ray Winstone is in negotiations to play Luke Bracey’s partner in Alcon’s reboot of “Point Break,” which also stars Gerard Butler.

Ericson Core is helming the pic.

The remake will retain the original story of an FBI agent infiltrating a ring of criminals, but will be set in the world of extreme sports. Winstone plays the older, veteran partner of Bracey, which Gary Busey famously played in the 1991 original.

Alcon’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove are producing along with John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor and Kurt Wimmer.

Winstone can currently be seen in Paramount’s “Noah” and can be seen later this year in the Silver Pictures pic “The Gunman” starring Sean Penn. He is repped by Resolution and Creative Artists Management.

    I’ve never seen none of his movies, but regardless of which low-budget actors are in this crappy remake it will never beat the original!

  2. James says:

    Never heard of him.

    Can’t wait for this one. Didn’t like the first Point Break too formulaic, but this sounds great. Love Gerard Butler so versatile and Ray Winstone tough but lovely
    . Just be careful with surfing guys. Gerry take care.
