According to Film Rating, Amazon Studios’ upcoming Road House reboot has officially been rated by the Motion Picture Association.
What is the Road House reboot rated?
Road House was given an R-rating by the MPA for “violence throughout, pervasive language, and some nudity.” This isn’t surprising for the Jake Gyllenhaal-led action movie since the original 1989 film starring Patrick Swayze was also R-rated. At the time of writing, Amazon Studios has not yet revealed the release date for the Road House reboot, but it’s expected to make its debut on Prime Video.
“The new take follows a former UFC fighter who takes a job as a bouncer at a rough-and-tumble roadhouse in the Florida Keys, but soon discovers that not everything is what it seems in this tropical paradise,” reads the synopsis.
The Road House remake is directed by The Bourne Identity filmmaker Doug Liman from a screenplay written by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry. Joining Gyllenhaal are UFC star Conor McGregor, The Suicide Squad breakout Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen (Game Night), Gbemisola Ikumelo (The Last Tree), Lukas Gage (The White Lotus), Hannah Love Lanier (A Black Lady Sketch Show), Travis Van Winkle (Accepted), B.K. Cannon (Switched at Birth), Arturo Castro (Broad City), Dominique Columbus (Ray Donovan), Beau Knapp (Southpaw), and Bob Menery.
The Road House remake is executive produced by JJ Hook, Alison Winter, and Aaron Auch, with Joel Silver producing for Silver Pictures. As part of its production, Gyllenhaal was seen filming at the UFC 285 event, including the weigh-in segments, and staging a fight in the octagon with former UFC fighter Jay Hieron.
