Road House 2024 is serving up some familiar faces.

The "high-octane, adrenaline-filled reimagining" of the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie features Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role of Dalton, an ex-UFC fighter who "takes a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse, only to discover that this paradise is not all it seems," per a synopsis.

Directed by Doug Liman, the new Road House is a reimagining of the one in which late actor Swayze played a hard-hitting bouncer responsible for laying down the law at a rowdy bar. That film, directed by Rowdy Herrington, also starred Kelly Lynch and Sam Elliott.
