While doing promotion for 47 Ronin, Keanu Reeves spoke with BBC 5 Live radio and was against involvement in the planned Point Break remake.
"Absolutely no, it's not my place," he said on Tuesday, reports Variety. "If they can find a way to do it that works out good, then God bless them."
Plans for a remake surfaced in 2011 through Alcom Entertainment, of the 1991 hit movie that Reeves headline with Patrick Swayze. A screenplay has already been written by Kurt Wimmer, who did the Total Recall remake. As of April, the project is still in the works.
The Thumbsucker actor did question all the remakes noting, "But is it a good thing?" Reeves also wondered whether some movies, such as Apocalypse Now, possibly having a "no-remake clause," to keep Hollywood from going back to it.
Though Reeves won't do a Point Break remake, he did recently say he was open to doing a Bill & Ted sequel and sounded pretty excited about the chances, as he noted they were trying to secure financing before moving ahead with the possibility of a third film.
He did say, "I think it's pretty surreal, playing Bill & Ted at 50. But we have a good story in that."
