Back in February the rights to Tomb Raider landed at Warner Bros. with the studio tapping Divergent screenwriter Evan Daugherty to help reboot the franchise. And in July we heard rumors that WB and MGM were looking to hire a woman to direct the new Tomb Raider film — specifically that they were seeking a “Michelle MacLaren type” to fill the director’s chair. A new rumor suggests that the studios now have a shortlist of directors which unsurprisingly includes Kathryn Bigelow. Dream big, guys.

Released in 1991, 'Point Break' starred Keanu Reeves as Johnny Utah, an FBI agent who infiltrates a crew of surfing bank robbers in an attempt to bust them, but unwittingly bonds with their leader, Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). The classic action flick was directed by Kathryn Bigelow, way back before she directed 'The Hurt Locker' (which earned her an Oscar for Best Director, making her the first woman to win that award) and 'Zero Dark Thirty.' Twenty-three years later, after a remake has been announced with Gerard Butler succeeding Swayze, we take a look back at the cast of this cult favorite and see what they're up to now.
