point break release dateGerard Butler dropped out of Point Break, but Edgar Ramirez is in talks to step inLuke Bracey and Ray Winstone co-star.  Ericson Core (Invincible) will direct the remake, set in the world of international heists and extreme sports.

Witherspoon and Laura Dern star in Wild, Vallée’s follow-up to Dallas Buyers Club. Here’s the official synopsis:

With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) has lost all hope.  After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision.  With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone.  WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.

Box Office Mojo refers to Witherspoon’s other project as Untitled Reese Witherspoon/Sofia Vergara Comedy, so it may no longer be called Don’t Mess with TexasAnne Fletcher (The Proposal) is set to direct the comedy about a police officer (Witherspoon) and a prisoner (Vergara) who are forced to go on the run together.

the drop release date james-gandolfini-tom-hardyTom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville star in The Drop, directed by Michaël Roskam (Bullhead). Here’s the official synopsis:

“THE DROP is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of BULLHEAD.  Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (SHUTTER ISLAND, GONE BABY GONE), THE DROP follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” in the underworld of Brooklyn bars.  Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past.”

You’re on your own trying to guess what Legendary and Universal have in store with Untitled 2016 Event Project.
