Point Break: Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze discuss surfboard shapes

Keanu Reeves has ruled the possibility of participating in a remake of the classic Hollywood surf movie "Point Break".

The star of Kathryn Bigelow's multi-million box office hit is turning 50, and Patrick Swayze has passed away in 2009.

"Absolutely not. It's not my place. If they can find a way to do it that works out good, then God bless them", says Reeves, who starred in the 1991 film as Johnny Utah.

"Sounds very exciting - but is it a good thing? I don't know", added Keanu. The Canadian actor believes that some films - such as "Wizard of Oz" or "Apocalypse Now" - should have a "no remake clause".

After the death of Swayze, the "Point Break" sequel idea was abandoned, but a remake has been in the headlines since 2011, when Alcon Entertainment showed signs of interest.

Apparently, the script has been written by Kurt Wimmer, and the new film could be directed by Ericson Core.
