Gerard Butler has pulled out of the 'Point Break' remake.
The 44-year-old actor was due to step into the late Patrick Swayze's shoes in a reboot of the classic 1991 surfer heist film, but has opted out of playing central character Bodhi due to a scheduling conflict and unnamed ''creative differences''.
The rugged star was already committed to filming the sequel to 'Olympus Has Fallen' in London this autumn, so would have been unable to take part in the lengthy 'Point Break' shoot, which kicks off in June and is expected to last several months and be filmed at multiple international locations.
Director Ericson Core and producers are now scrambling to find a replacement for Butler since filming is still scheduled to start next month, The Hollywood Reporter claims.
