Recommended Posts

Jake Gyllenhaal is starring in a remake of Road House for Amazon, directed by Doug Liman. Don’t know why it needs to be remade, but there it is. He will be a former UFC fighter who takes a job as a bouncer in the Florida Keys.

 

Conor McGregor will also be in it, presumably with the UFC link. But they say he isn’t playing himself. It’s supposed to be his first proper acting job. But can he act?

 

Also cast are 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.

Well, he usually acts like a cunt.

I read an article on MSN where the actor who played Jimmy told the story that they really laid into each other in the last fight, after they both agreed but didn’t tell anyone else. I remember it looking brutal, GREAT film.

 

”I’m on my break!”

 

”Stay on it”

As other have said this film doesn't need a remake, the original is solid and has aged well against similar films of the time. 

 

I can't fathom why they'd do it beyond some desire to have control of it creatively and financially. 

 

Will definitely give it a watch but right now I wouldn't mind seeing the original again.

Jake is one of my favourite actors and I love the original. 

 

So I will definitely give it a watch. 

 

Fuck Conor McGregor though. Wee prick.

Ronda Rousey was supposed to be in a remake of this a few years back, with her as the lead. 

 

My word that would have been terrible, Ronda has all the personality and charm of a biscuit.

McGregor will probably just have a similar role to the one Terry Funk did in the original.

 

Just long enough to go “Hey, Terry Funk’s in this…” and possibly make a five minute YouTube supercut of him mostly looking like a hapless goon.

that’s who he is! Each time I’ve watched it I thought he looks familiar but never thought to look it up as I assumed he was just a generic bad guy I’d seen somewhere else.
