Amazon MGM Studios has released the official trailer and poster for Road House, which will begin streaming on Prime Video on March 21.
The remake of the 1989 film is rated R for violence throughout, pervasive language, and some nudity. The movie’s runtime is one hour and 54 minutes.
In the adrenaline-fueled reimagining of the 80s cult classic, ex-UFC fighter Dalton (Jake Gyllenhaal) takes a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse, only to discover that this paradise is not all it seems.
Directed by Doug Liman, who is boycotting the SXSW premiere of the film due to it not getting a theatrical release, Road House features a screenplay by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry.
The cast is rounded out by Arturo Castro, B.K. Cannon, Beau Knapp, Darren Barnet, Dominique Columbus, Bob Menery, Catfish Jean, Kevin Carroll, Travis Van Winkle, and Hannah Lanier.
Joel Silver (The Matrix, Die Hard) is producing for his company, Silver Pictures. JJ Hook, Alison Winter, Aaron Auch, and Audie Attar serve as executive producers.
“Road House is a homerun for us. Not only is it a nod to fans of the original, but it is also a big, fun, broad audience movie,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios, when the movie was announced. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Joel, Doug, and this great cast led by Jake Gyllenhaal and for them to come together to reimagine the classic MGM film as an action-packed adventure for our global audience.”
“I’m thrilled to put my own spin on the beloved Road House legacy. And I can’t wait to show audiences what Jake and I are going to do with this iconic role,” said director Doug Liman in August 2022.
“The original Road House has a special place in my heart, and I am so excited to bring this newly imagined version to audiences around the world. Doug and I have each made some big, boisterous action movies and are ready to bring everything we have to this one,” said producer Joel Silver at the time.
