Apparently they’re remaking “Road House” staring Jake Gyllenhaal and Connor McGregor

From Ariel Helwani

quote:

Conor McGregor will make his motion picture acting debut along Jake Gyllenhaal in the 80’s classic “Road House” remake, it was announced today. Filming starts within the month. He will have a leading role.

Here’s a statement from his spokesperson @KarenKesslerPR :

A Road House reboot?




Found this from Deadline

quote:

EXCLUSIVE: 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.

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.


quote:

The new take follows a former UFC fighter (Gyllenhaal) who takes a job as a bouncer at a rough-and-tumble roadhouse in the Florida Keys, but soon discovers that not everything is what it seems in this tropical paradise. While exact details behind who McGregor will be playing are unknown, sources made it clear he would be playing an original character and not himself in the project. The Amazon Original Movie is set to go into production in the Dominican Republic this month and will stream on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide at release.

Since it’s 2022, looking at the cast list, it’s probably Gbemisola Ikumelo

I can't wait till they remake The Wiz, starring Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow. And Over the Top, starring Anthony Anderson.

Rogan and others went overboard with that kind of talk. Rhonda was a one trick fighter. It was an awesome trick, it made her a champion, but it didn't take long for the strikers and kickers to expose her flaws.
