The classic 1989 film Road House, which featured Patrick Swayze as a legendary bouncer called in to clean up a notorious Missouri club with his fists, is getting a remake. The Hollywood Reporter says that MGM has assigned Rob Cohen, director of the original The Fast and the Furious, to direct. Road House was a big hit for Swayze, who plays a vigilante “cooler” called in to clean up the riotous Double Deuce in Jasper, MO. His character soon runs afoul of a corrupt local businessman, leading to many people being punched in the face.
A script has been written, but there’s no word on casting or an estimated release date. While we wait, here are 11 minutes of fights from the original (viewer discretion advised).
