The remake will be set in the international world of extreme sports instead of the surf scene, and like the original involves an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a criminal ring. Director Ericson Core (“Invincible”) will helm the remake with a script from Kurt Wimmer (“Salt”, “Total Recall”). Core is also known for his cinematography work for “The Fast and the Furious”.
