Jake Gyllenhaal's Road House Remake Has Tapped A UFC Icon For Their Acting Debut

Everything is moving quickly for the Jake Gyllenhaal-led remake of the Patrick Swayze movie Road House, as production on the Amazon Prime film will start this month. While most of the cast was already announced, another co-star has been revealed, and their presence will play right into Gyllenhaal’s UFC angle. The remake just tapped a UFC icon to make their acting debut.

Deadline reports that two-time UFC champion Conor McGregor will join Jake  Gyllenhaal in the reboot of the 1980s classic action flick. It’s unknown what McGregor’s role will be in the upcoming film. This won’t be the mixed martial artist’s first film, as he headlined the 2017 documentary Conor McGregor: Notorious. Sources close to the project claimed McGregor won’t play himself, but an original character for the Road House remake.
