Ericson Core has signed on to direct the remake of Point Break for Alcon Entertainment. Like the 1991 original, the remake follows a FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a criminal ring, set in the world of international extreme sports.
Core got his start as a cinematographer on the likes of The Fast and the Furious before making his directorial debut with Invincible in 2006. Core will try to follow the career trajectory of Kathryn Bigelow, who launched from Point Break to Oscar win in just under 20 years. Michael DeLuca, John Baldecchi, Chris Taylor, and Kurt Wimmer will produce the remake. Principal photography is set to begin at the end of the year.
