Gerard Butler (left) and Jonny Weston in 'Chasing Mavericks'. Butler recently left the 'Point Break' remake.
As the search for his replacement begins, check out our suggestions.
Gerard Butler is said to have dropped out of the highly-anticipated Point Break remake, citing “creative differences” and “scheduling conflict” as part of the reasons.
Butler was set to star as Bodhi, the surfer-turned-bank robber played by Patrick Swayze in the original 1991 hit, with Luke Bracey as undercover FBI agent Johnny Utah, originally played by Keanu Reeves.
The reboot is helmed by director Ericson Core from a script by Kurt Wimmer, and is set for a 2015 release.
We’re not sure if the studio or director has anyone in mind to replace Butler, but here are our top choices (and a few we hope will NOT be chosen).
Josh Holloway is a natural on the beach...
Alex O'Loughlin is also used to being on the beach, but we're not sure if he can carry off playing someone named 'Bodhi' though.
Josh Lucas, anyone?
Matthew McConaughey classic would've been perfect at Bodhi but Matthew McConaughey 2.0, the one who keeps winning awards, may no longer fit the bill. Still... THAT HAIR.
Apparently, Robert Downey Jr is starting to get sick of playing Tony Stark. Will he take on this challenge?
Robert Pattinson? .... Just kidding.
Shia LaBeouf = NEVER.
Heh. Just because.
