London: Actor Ray Winstone has been cast in the `Point Break` remake. The veteran actor will play Pappas in the Ericson Core-directed Alcon Entertainment movie, reportedly.

The role was originally played by Gary Busey in the original 1991 film. Winstone was first rumoured for the role in April.

`Point Break` centres around FBI agent Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey) who goes undercover to break a criminal ring within the extreme sports scene.

Gerard Butler was in line to play villain Bodhi before dropping out this week. Winstone was most recently seen in Darren Aronofsky`s `Noah`.

`Point Break` will enter production in June.
