Well, technically, The Fast and the Furious was a remake (exact, same story) of Point Break, but now we're getting an actually named POINT BREAK remake.

I hate the movie biz.

@edgarwright. I hope the Point Break remake has the two leads bonding over Hot Fuzz.

Me too.

Why??

Has it even been twenty years since Point Break came out? And I love me some Point Break, but it ain't exactly Shakespeare.

If Vin Diesel comes anywhere close to this script, I think it'll be justified to let Hollywood float off into the sea forever.
