Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in a cult film remake Road House from 1989. Production on the film, which will be released via Amazon Prime Video, will begin this month in the Dominican Republic.
The film is directed by Doug Liman. “I look forward to putting my own spin on the beloved Road House,” Liman said in a statement. “And I can’t wait to show the public what Jake and I are going to do with this iconic role.
The original 1989 film starring Patrick Swayze is about a bouncer who has to put things in order at a bar in Missouri. He soon gets into a fight with a corrupt businessman. In the remake, Gyllenhaal plays a former UFC fighter who takes a job as a security guard in the Florida Keys and soon finds out that “all is not as it seems in tropical paradise.” Billy Magnussen, Daniela Melchior, Lukas Gage and Gbemisola Ikumelo also have roles in the film.
