Variety is reporting that UFC Battemweight champion Ronda Rousey will star in the reboot of the classic action film from the 1980’s Road House that the late great Patrick Swayze made famous.
Released in 1989, the original film starred Swayze as a bouncer hired to clean up one of the rowdiest, loudest bars in Missouri, The Double Deuce. A gentleman with a degree in philosophy, Swayze’s character’s calm is put to the test when he needs to protect the town from a corrupt businessman.
Rousey embraced the idea of having the staring role but said she wanted to be respectful before perusing the project so she reached out to Swayze’s widow Lisa Neimi for her blessing which she gladly gave.
Sources say that MGM are currently talking to screenwriters and that production is likely to begin in 2016 with Rousey playing the roll Swayze did in the original. Previously having roles in The expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage this project is sure to be Rousey’s biggest role up to date.
