ISLAND30 years ago the movie ‘Road House’ was released with this action movie directed by Rowdy Herrington and starring an icon of the time Patrick Swayze.
Now the remake of this story is being released by Amazon Prime Video, with Jake Gyllenhaal plays a leading role
Gyllenhaal has taken the role very seriously as he has changed his physical appearance for filming.
In this new version of ‘Road House’, there is a scene filmed at an actual UFC 285 weigh-in where Gyllenhaal climbs onto the stage, takes off his shirt and poses identically to the other fighters.
However, for this the actor had to go through tough physical training and take care of his diet as if he were a professional fighter.
Jake Gyllenhaal is getting a makeover for his new movie
The new feature film will arrive in late 2023 on Amazon Prime Video, where it will be released exclusively.
The plot is not yet clear, but it will be true to the original, where a retired UFC fighter takes a job as a bouncer at a roadside inn and things happen to him that will change his life.
This is not the first time the actor has played a fighter as he has already portrayed a boxer in the 2015 film ‘Redemption’.
Gyllenhaal has had a long career as a performer and at the age of 42 he has collected awards for his work and has received Golden Globes, BAFTA awards and an Oscar.
In his career we can see performances of all kinds in action films, comedies, dramas and science fiction.
