Australian actress Teresa Palmer has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Point Break remake.

The Warm Bodies star is set to play the love interest for fellow Aussie Luke Bracey's Johnny Utah, an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent trying to infiltrate a criminal surf gang.

Keanu Reeves portrayed Utah in the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow movie, while Lori Petty portrayed his girlfriend.

Ray Winstone and Zero Dark Thirty star Edgar Ramirez have also been cast in the film. Ramirez will play surfer criminal Bodhi, the character made famous by Patrick Swayze in the original film.

Ramirez was tapped to replace Gerard Butler in May (14) after the 300 actor dropped out of the project following a series of creative differences with director Ericson Core, and a scheduling conflict.

Production on the film is set to begin this month (Jun14).
