About Road House Movie:

Road House is an American action film directed by Doug Liman, from a screenplay by Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry. It is a reimagining of the 1989 film of the same name. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Daniela Melchior, Conor McGregor, J. D. Pardo, Arturo Castro and Billy Magnussen. Joel Silver produces the film, as he did the original.

In November 2013, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures began development on the film with Rob Cohen directing and Michael Stokes writing. In September 2015, Cohen and Stokes had vacated the project while Ronda Rousey was cast in the lead role.

Filming was projected to begin sometime the following year. The next month, Nick Cassavetes boarded the film as writer and director. The project was put on hold until November 2021, when MGM began another attempt, with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star and Doug Liman to direct. The studio prioritized the film despite Gyllenhaal and Liman’s commitments to Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant and Everest, respectively.

A search for a new writer began to revise a previous draft by Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry. By August 2022, Sheldon Turner had turned in a rewrite of the script. Ultimately, Bagarozzi and Mondry received final screenplay credit, with story credit given to the duo and the original story writer David Lee Henry.

Filming began in the Dominican Republic on August 23, 2022. On March 3, 2023, Gyllenhaal shot a scene with former Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Jay Hieron following the ceremonial weigh-ins for UFC 285 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The scene was done in front of fans who attended the weigh-ins and included UFC president Dana White, play-by-play announcer Jon Anik and other regular UFC event personnel. A walkout scene with Gyllenhaal was filmed during an intermission at the event.

Road House had its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 8, 2024, as the opening night film, and was released in the United States via streaming on Prime Video by Amazon MGM Studios on March 21, 2024. Liman wrote an editorial piece in Deadline Hollywood criticizing Amazon for bypassing a theatrical release for the film after they purchased MGM and announced a $1 billion investment to release 12–15 films a year theatrically. He wrote that he would not be attending the film’s premiere at SXSW in protest. Gyllenhaal responded by stating that while he sympathized with Liman’s views, Amazon made it clear that it would have a streaming release for the film.

On February 27, 2024, the original screenwriter for the 1989 version, R. Lance Hill, sued MGM and Amazon claiming copyright infringement and also accusing the studio of using AI–generated voices of the actors to complete the project during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike; Hill is hoping to bar the release of the film.
