Road House


This just in. The original Road House movie starring Patrick Swayzee is going to be re-made. MGM has assigned Rob Cohen, director of Fast And Furious 1, to do the job. No news about casting yet. Who do you think would be good in the Swayzee role? What about the Sam Elliot role?

I really wish Mark Wahlberg still went by "Marky Mark" even as an actor. It is so much more exciting.

I'd love to see Clooney in the Sam Elliot role. It needs someone of effortless coolness if it's going to rival Sam's portrayal. Brad Pitt could do a good job, as could Denzel Washington. Viggo Mortensen or Kevin Costner might work in their own way. Or you could go bargain basement and give it to Christian Slater, which I'd actually like.

I haven't really got anyone for Patrick's role, but Josh Hartnett, Dominic Cooper or Eddie Cahill might work.

It'll never happen though... and the remake will be a PG rated CGI fest.

Rob Cohen...oooookayyy (backs away then runs to door).

This is just the sort of film that should be remade (the originals not exactly a classic) but honestly, from the director of The Mummy thanks

It'll probably be Channing Tatum, an actor I don't mind, but totally wrong for the role.

The reboot (not remake) goes into production this month. Jake Gyllenhaal will star in the film and play a former UFC fighter who takes a job as a bouncer of a bar in the Florida Keys and discovers that his place is not paradise. Doug Liman is directing the film and co-stars Billy Magnussen, Daniela Melchior, Lukas Gage. The film will premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
It's All About the Movies

"Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream it takes over as the number one hormone. It bosses the enzymes, directs the pineal gland, plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to Film is more Film." - Frank Capra

And so it begins...Conor McGregor is also making his film debut in this..
