Road House Reboot
Just Hit A Major
Production
Milestone
By ZACHARY LEEMAN
"Road House" has become a bona fide cult classic and a remake has been in the works for a while now, with Jake Gyllenhaal taking on the lead role. With a script by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, the newest "Road House" is being produced by Amazon Studios and production has just hit a major milestone.
The Prime Video Twitter account teamed up with the official MGM account to post an image of Jake Gyllenhaal and director Doug Liman on the set, revealing that filming is officially underway. Gyllenhaal is fresh off of Michael Bay's "Ambulance" and Liman has delivered massive hits in the past like "The Bourne Identity" and "Edge of Tomorrow."
This is actually not the first time "Road House" has gotten an update since 1989. In 2006, a barely-related sequel was released to the home video market. "Road House: Last Call" didn't exactly capture the cultural consciousness like the original did, but perhaps the reimagining will manage to reignite the spark that has kept "Road House" so beloved for all these years.
