Soooo...they're doing a remake of the Patrick Swayze classic 'Roadhouse' starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and now also, UFC star Conor McGregor...
quote:

In what would mark his first acting job in a major studio movie, two-time UFC champion Conor McGregor is set to join Jake Gyllenhaal in Prime Video’s new reimagining of the classic 80s action pic Road House. He joins a cast that already includes Billy Magnussen, Daniela Melchior, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Lukas Gage, Hannah Love Lanier, Travis Van Winkle, B.K. Cannon, Arturo Castro, Dominique Columbus, Beau Knapp and Bob Menery to join the cast. Doug Liman is directing from a script written by Anthony Bagarozzi & Charles Mondry. Joel Silver is producing for his company, Silver Pictures. JJ Hook, Alison Winter, and Aaron Auch will serve as executive producers.

Hollywood has been trying for some time to get in business with the UFC superstar but he didn’t want to just jump into anything and wanted the project he made his debut in to be the right fit. Insiders say when he got wind there was interest for him to join Road House, he actually watched the film for the first time and after enjoying the original, was game to meet to see how he would play a part in this film. Sources go on to say that after a meeting with Silver, he was all in and loved the idea where this new story was headed compared to the original.
Why remake this movie? Why not make this movie and just call it something different? So dumb.

Aww Man, I wish they would leave this one alone... Jake Ghyellyenahaal is no Patrick Swayze and nobody can replace Sam Elliot.

This is the second remake. The first remake was made in Shreveport 10, 12 years ago. It is so bad they still make you pay for it on certain networks.

McNugget can’t fight so I bet he can’t act either.

"Why remake this movie? Why not make this movie and just call it something different? So dumb."

Remakes are an easy way to borrow clout from an already successful venture, rather than starting from 0. Makes perfect sense from a business standpoint. Will it probably be terrible? Almost certainly.
