Point BreakA remake of 1991 hit movie Point Break is surfing back into action after an initial reboot was shelved following Patrick Swayze's death in 2009.

The late Ghost actor and Keanu Reeves starred in the original cult film, about a gang of surfers who rob banks.

Swayze was due to reprise his role as group leader Bodhi in a revamp, but the movie was abandoned after the star lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.

Now, studio bosses at Alcon Entertainment have started work on the film, which will center around extreme sports.

A representative tells Daily Variety, "The new version is set in the world of international extreme sports, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring."
