Road House Sequel Is Happening At Amazon, Jake Gyllenhaal Will Return To Bust More Heads – SlashFilm

Share


The new “Road House” centers on Gyllenhaal’s Dalton, an ex-UFC fighter with a dark past. He is scraping by winning seedy fights when Frankie (Jessica Williams), the owner of a roadhouse in the Florida Keys, hires him to be her new bouncer, specifically to stop a violent gang that works for a crime boss named Brandt (Billy Magnussen). The film also starred Daniela Melchior (“The Suicide Squad”) and UFC superstar Conor McGregor, marking his acting debut. McGregor and Gyllenhaal mentored one another during filming, as they both had experience in the other’s real-life profession.

There is no word yet on how soon production will get underway on the sequel, nor is it clear if the same writers will return. Amazon does seem eager to get it going, as they waited less than two months to make the announcement. Much of it will likely depend on Gyllenhaal’s schedule, as he is very much an in-demand star. It also might depend on finding the right director, assuming Liman doesn’t somehow find a way to get right with the studio and return. It seems far more likely someone else will occupy the director’s chair, but stranger things have happened.

The “Road House” sequel does not have a release date but stay tuned.
