In terrible, no good, very bad news, they’re remaking Road House, and Rob Cohen (The Fast And The Furious, Alex Cross) is attached to direct. Road House is one of those grimy, dirty diamonds in the rough you do not want to resurrect because there’s no hope in hell of recapturing that kind of mulleted lightning in a bottle. Road House is beloved not because it’s good but because it is brimming over with the weird, delightful alchemy between a young Patrick Swayze and Sam Elliott’s sexy mop of hair.
Oh yes, I suppose Kelly Lynch was there too.
So they’ve got their (sub-par) director attached, but who is going to take on the Swayze bouncer-with-a-heart-of-gold role in all its sheer, unadulterated shirtlessness?
Look into your heart — I think you’ll find you already know the greasy-ab’d answer.
