The Amazon Prime remake of ‘Road House’ will feature Jake Gyllenhaal as Conor McGregor

A report says Conor McGregor will be making his acting debut in Jake Gyllenhaal’s roadhouse film for Amazon Prime. The UFC champion, who gained international fame as a champion, will join director Doug Liman and producer Joel Silver in the 1989 action remake. According to McGregor’s spokesperson Karen Kessler, the actor is eager to expand his storied career into Hollywood and star alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the reimagined version of ‘Road House.

According to the spokesperson, McGregor still has a desire to fight, but he’s also “eager” to be a part of the film. The McGregor empire is expanding, and he’s eager to get started filming, Kessler said. While fighting remains his top priority, this is the start of another successful undertaking. McGregor has not revealed the details of his role, but he is reported to be portraying an original character in the movie rather than playing himself.

As a fan favorite in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, McGregor rose to fame instantly due to his larger-than-life personality and unassailable trash-talking. Aside from his outstanding striking ability, he was also a charismatic promoter and brewer of controversy who disrupted the status quo. The UFC has featured McGregor since he won his first championship in 2015 when he last fought.

As a remake of the 1989 film starring Patrick Swayze, Kelly Lynch, Sam Elliot, Ben Gazzara, Jeff Healey, and Julie Michaels, “Road House” brings back a wide range of actors. The original movie tells the story of Swayze getting a job at a Missouri bar as a bouncer. Gyllenhaal will reprise his role as an ex-UFC fighter who lands a job at the same Florida Keys bar.

In a statement to the outlet, Liman said, “I’m thrilled to be able to put my spin on the Road House legacy. I’m looking forward to showing audiences what Jake and I are going to bring to this iconic role.” “As a fan of the original Road House, I’m eager and excited to share this reimagined version with audiences all over the world. The director and I have each directed some big, boisterous action films, and we’re ready to bring everything we’ve got towards this one,” Silver, the producer remarked.

“This remake is a home run,” said Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, who says it pays homage to the original and appeals to “a big, fun, broad audience.” “We’re very proud of Road House because it’s not only a nod to fans of the original, but it’s also a big, fun, broad audience movie,” she said, according to Deadline. This reimagining of the classic MGM film as an action-packed adventure for a global audience is a pleasure to work on with Joel, Doug, and this great cast led by Jake Gyllenhaal.
