Though the remake 'sounds very exciting,' the 'Man of Tai Chi' director has no desire to reprise his role as Johnny Utah.
Keanu Reeves rules out his involvement in the upcoming remake of his 1991 action hit "Point Break". When asked by BBC if he would like to reprise his role as an undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah, the "Constantine" star says, "Absolutely not. It's not my place."
Voicing his thoughts on the plan to redo the Kathryn Bigelow-directed pic, the "Matrix" actor says the remake project "sounds very exciting - but is it a good thing? I don't know." He adds, "If they can find a way to do it that works out good, then God bless them."
The original movie starred Reeves, Patrick Swayze and Gary Busey. The remake will be helmed by "Invincible" director Ericson Core. "It's not a literal remake of the original the way Footloose was," producer Andrew Kosove once said.
While Reeves counts himself out of the "Point Break" remake, he is open to the idea of making a new "Bill & Ted" movie. "It's still in the dream," the actor says. "There's a script and we're trying to make it. So we'll see."
Reeves recently starred in Chinese-American martial arts film "Man of Tai Chi" which also marked his directorial debut. His new movie "47 Ronin" opens in U.S. theaters on December 25.
