Rhonda Rousey set to star in Roadhouse remake?

September 9th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Word on the nerd-vine is the Rhonda Rousey is set to star in the Patrick Swayze role in a Roadhouse.

Apparently MGM is looking to begin filming in 2016 and are working out the finder details of writing the project at the minute.

The original movie saw Patrick Swayze starring as a bouncer working a rough bar called The Double Deuce. And, as many bouncers have experienced, he soon runs up against a corrupt business man. Happens. All. The. Time.

Apparently Rousey has been pursuing the gig for quite some time and even contacted Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi, to ask for her blessing… and got it.

Well, we suppose she’ll need something until the Captain Marvel gig comes up, huh?

Anyway, what do you guys reckon?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
