Gary Busey

'Point Break' Remake

Offends the Living ... and the Dead

7/25/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Gary Busey Point Break Remake Gary Busey is convinced the "Point Break" remake will not happen because it would be like remaking "Bambi" ... and apparently Patrick Swayze's ghost agrees with him.

Our photog spotted Pappas himself in Malibu, where he insisted the movie is not happening ... even though it really is. Not only did Busey "know" the remake was not going forward, but he explained why … by invoking Swayze's name in a way only Gary could.

Perhaps he meant the movie is not happening with Gerard Butler, who dropped out of playing Bodhi.

We doubt it, but maybe ...

What's the sense in making fun of him? The man's got a TBI for fux sake, have some respect. The poor bastard has no idea what he's talking about. Your paps are shameless.

Point Break is such a great movie. The remake is only insulting in that Hollywood cannot come up with fresh ideas for movies anymore. But I think Mr. Swayze, being the cool guy he was would be ok with a remake.

Gerard Butler as Bodhi? Obviously the casting agent has never seen Point Break.

I love Gary Busey and even though he has brain damage/trauma that makes him crazy he is also a genius with the stuff he says.

Here's an idea why not come up with an original idea for a movie instead of remaking movies that have already been made? The arrogance and laziness of Hollywood is hilarious. I don't remember ever seeing the remake of a movie and thinking it was better than the original.

Gary Busey rocks! They should make an action adventure with Gary Busey, Christian Kane (from Leverage), Paulie Perrette (from NCIS), Cuba Gooding Jr (from Jerry McGuire) and Winona Ryder.

They already remade Point Break years ago. They called it Fast & Furious, remember?

It's a motherf*cking travesty to touch Point Break.
Disgusting, to have to steal a whole film.

Patrick was a charismatic bank robber. Butler is always an unlikable character in his movies... he has that grimace about him. I don't think he could pull it off. They need to bring Busey back. Now THAT I'd go see.... SEE YA IN THE NEXT LIFE, JOHHNY!
