The Original Road House
Road House is a cult classic which remains close to the hearts of many. It told the story of James Dalton, a zen bouncer who is hired by a rowdy bar named Road House in Missouri. Within no time, Dalton meets the corrupt businessman who is controlling the small town.
The new movie will see Jake Gyllenhaal as a retired UFC fighter who takes the job of a bouncer in a rough bar in Florida, and starts uncovering secrets about the place and the town.
The movie will star Billy Magnussen, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Daniela Melchior, and Lukas Gage in supporting roles.
