Ericson Core selected to direct “Point Break” remake


Posted by on

Yes, yet another remake is coming down the pipeline, and this time it’s “Point Break” that’s been targeted. Alcon Entertainment, the same people behind the upcoming “Blade Runner” sequel, have announced that “Invincible” director Ericson Core will helm the upcoming movie.

This will Core’s second feature film, which is surprisingly fitting. Kathryn Bigelow had only directed a handful of movies before “Point Break” helped break her onto the Hollywood scene, and now she’s gone on to win an Oscar. Not a bad career trajectory if you ask us.

It’s unclear if this new movie will act as a reboot, remake or sequel, but the press release sent out about the directing news didn’t mention Bigelow or star Keanu Reeves being involved in any way (thank goodness). “Law Abiding Citizen” scribe Kurt Wimmer, who will also act as one of the film’s producers, wrote the script.

“The new version of the film is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring. The filmmakers are keeping other plot points under wraps,” the press release reads. The plan is to have the movie shooting later this year.

As Core is known more for his cinematography than his directing prowess, the new “Point Break” film should at least look nice… and that’s about where our optimism ends. “Point Break” is a movie that still stands on its own even though it’s over 20 years old, so it’s a bit disappointing to hear that Hollywood is now trying to make it new again.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
