Keanu: No to Point Break remake

Keanu Reeves has ruled out making an appearance in a remake of action thriller Point Break.
The Hollywood heartthrob starred with Patrick Swayze in the 1991 film, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow. It was announced in 2011 that Alcon Entertainment were remaking the film for release by Warner Bros.
Asked by BBC 5 live if he would like to be involved, Keanu said: "Absolutely not. It's not my place."
He added: "If they can find a way to do it that works out good, then God bless them."
Keanu played an FBI agent who went undercover to infiltrate a gang of surfers, led by Swayze's character, who were robbing banks on the side. The film became a cult classic.
It is not known if the remake will be set in the world of surfing or a different extreme sport.
Keanu told 5 live's Colin Paterson the remake "sounds very exciting - but is it a good thing? I don't know".
He went on to speculate that some films - such as Wizard of Oz or Apocalypse Now - should have a "no remake clause".
But the 49-year-old actor did confirm plans to make a new sequel to another of his cult hits, the Bill and Ted movies.
"It's still in the dream," he said. "There's a script and we're trying to make it. So we'll see."
