Everything You Need To Know About Roadhouse!

We are so excited about the announcement of Roadhouse! Here is everything you need to know and what you can expect from the remake.

The new Roadhouse will be released later this year on Amazon Prime. We have seen some sneak peeks into the filming, which took place recently on the same set as the highly anticipated UFC Heavyweight Championship. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming action film.

The cast has been announced, and the main protagonist will be played by Jake Gyllenhaal. He will be joined by Daniela Melchior, Lukas Cage, and James Thomas Hieronymus, a former UFC contender and stuntman.

Also notably joining the set for Roadhouse is Conor McGregor, who is a two-weight class UFC champion. He is known as “notorious” and is in the conversation as one of the greatest fighters in the history of the sport.

Other big names joining Gyllenhaal include Billy Magnussen, Arturo Castro, Darren Barnet, Travis Van Winkle, Hannah Love Lanier, Gbemisola Ikumelo, and JD Pardo.

Joel Silver is the producer of the film and has produced Blockbusters like The Matrix, Die Hard, and The Nice Guys. He has a great relationship with UFC President Dana White which is allowing them to film using real equipment and facilities.

Finally, let’s get into what we can expect from the Roadhouse remake based on the original. In the original, James Dalton attempts to tame a wild bar, and he does it by beating people up and kicking people out. He eventually gets into trouble with a local thug and businessman.

While we are not sure how similar the two movies will be, you can bet there will be lots of parallels, and it has been said that Gyllenhaal’s character will be a retired UFC fighter. It has also been revealed that instead of Jasper, Missouri, the remake will be taking place in the Florida Keys.
