Road House – the story of bouncer James Dalton, played by Patrick Swayze, who works in bars. The new look tells the story of a former UFC fighter (Gyllenhaal) who takes a job as a bouncer at a diner in the Florida Keys, but soon discovers that not everything is as it seems in this tropical paradise.

“I'm in awe of that that I can contribute to my beloved Road House heritage. And I don't want to show the audience what Jake and I are going to do with this iconic role,” director Doug Liman told Deadline.

The film will star: Billy Magnussen (“Aladdin” ), Daniela Melchior (“Suicide Squad: Mission Bullet”), Gbemisola Ikumelo (“The Last Tree”), Lucas Gage (“White Lotus”), Hannah Love Lanier (“Candyman”) , Travis Van Winkle (“Friday the 13th”), B.C. Cannon (“Why Women Kill”), Arturo Castro ( “Narco”), Dominic Columbus (“Ray Donovan”), Beau Knapp (” Signal”).

Amazon Original Movie will start production in Dominican Republic this month.

Recall that Jake Gyllenhaal will produce and star in the film adaptation of the comic book Oblivion Song by Robert Kirkman and artist Lorenzo De Felici.
