Forget Patrick Swayze, Sam Elliott, Kelly Lynch and Ben Gazzara (for now), there are new bouncers, proprietors and such in Road House, and here’s a look at the character posters for Doug Liman’s reboot of the 1989 camp classic. Click through the gallery above.
Amazon MGM Studios today revealed that Post Malone is in the cast, fresh off his pre-Super Bowl performance of “America the Beautiful.” He’ll play Carter in the pic.
We also get a retouched and stylized look at star Jake Gyllenhaal, along with Conor McGregor, Daniela Melchior, Jessica Williams, Billy Magnussen, Lukas Gage and Darren Barnet.
Jake Gyllenhaal plays Dalton – Swayze’s role in the original. This time an ex-UFC fighter trying to escape his dark past and his penchant for violence. He is barely scraping by on the reputation that still precedes him when he is spotted by Frankie (Williams), owner of a roadhouse in the Florida Keys. She hires him to be her new bouncer in hopes of stopping a violent gang working for crime boss Brandt (Magnussen) from destroying her beloved bar. Even five to one, Brandt’s crew is no match for Dalton’s skills. But the stakes get higher with the arrival of ruthless gun-for-hire, Knox (McGregor).
The cast also includes Joaquim de Almeida, Arturo Castro, B.K. Cannon, Beau Knapp, Dominique Columbus, Bob Menery, Catfish Jean, Kevin Carroll, Travis Van Winkle and Hannah Lanier.
The film will hit Prime Video on March 21.
