The Double Deuce is opening its doors again, as a Road House remake is officially going forward at Prime Video, as reported by Deadline.
The reimagining of the 1989 film Road House will star Jake Gyllenhaal and has added 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 to the cast.
The remake follows a former UFC fighter (Gyllenhaal) who takes a job as a bouncer at a rough-and-tumble roadhouse in the Florida Keys, but soon discovers that not everything is what it seems in this tropical paradise. The original film starred Patrick Swayze as Dalton, a bouncer hired to clean up one of the rowdiest, loudest bars in Missouri, The Double Deuce. Swayze’s character is put to the test when he needs to protect the town from a corrupt businessman.
Doug Liman is directing from a script written by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry. Joel Silver is producing for his company, Silver Pictures, returning to the classic film after serving as the producer on the original 1989 rendition. JJ Hook, Alison Winter, and Aaron Auch will serve as executive producers.
