Ray Winstone looks set to star in the Point Break remake.
The Noah actor is currently in negotiations about signing up for the reboot of the 1991 action film which starred Keanu Reeves and the late Patrick Swayze, reported Variety.
He is in talks for the part of Agent Angelo Pappas, which was played by Gary Busey in the original film.
Luke Bracey has been cast as FBI agent Johnny Utah and Gerard Butler will be Bodhi, the parts played by Keanu and Patrick.
The plot - about an FBI agent infiltrating a crime ring - and the names of the main characters are expected to remain the same.
But the new movie will be set in the international world of extreme sports instead of the Southern California surf scene.
The Fast And The Furious' Ericson Core is directing the film, which is expected to shoot in the summer.
