Gerard Butler: only an actor knows the feeling

Gerard Butler is negotiating his participation in the remake of Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 surf movie "Point Break".

The Scottish actor, 44, is rumored to take the place of Patrick Swayze, as Bodhi, the charismatic leader of a gang of surfers.

Butler, who has played Frosty Hesson in the 2012 biographical film "Chasing Mavericks", has been the first choice for the new film written by Kurt Wimmer.

Ericson Core will be directing the "Point Break" remake, but Keanu Reeves has already ruled out the possibility of starring as FBI Agent Johnny Utah.

The new movie is set "in the international world of extreme sports, as opposed to the Southern California surf scene of the original", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Apparently, the new Bodhi is "an expert extreme-sports athlete who seeks nirvana through the conquest of a series of athletic feats such as surfing 100-foot waves.

Get ready to watch a surf film that finally features surfers riding waves. Thank you for focusing on what really matters, "Blue Intensity."
