Well they are finally getting around to remaking Road House. In fact, MGM is pushing it as a ‘priority’ — this could mean they either see money in underrepresented manly movies or they see an opportunity to put scowling feminists in there as bouncers.
Anyway… Jake Gyllenhaal, it’s probably going to be him.
There are no further details, but Variety has the story. I cannot see Gyllenhaal as James Dalton, the original character played by Patrick ‘pain don’t hurt’ Swayze. So, they’ve probably already given themselves an uphill battle with this one.
The original movie is a cult classic, garnering $30 million off a small budget and countless more sales in rentals.
