Jake Gyllenhaal back for Road House 2 at Amazon

May 18th, 2024 by Marc Comments

Well, it may be brainless fun, but there’s no arguing that folks enjoyed Jake Gyllenhaal fighting Conor McGregor so much that a second Roadhouse has been ordered by Amazon.

Yes, little is known at the minute but it seems the first movie was such a hit earlier this year that Gyllenhaal is returning Jake the doorman/bouncer.

Amazon MGM Studio chief Jennifer Salke said: “As we saw this spring the world went crazy for a little movie called Road House … nearly 8 million viewers globally have watched ‘Road House.’ We like to watch these results like a baby.” [I have no idea what that last part means].

As of now, there’s no word if writers Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry are returning or other stars Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen, Jessica Williams, Joaquim de Almeida, Conor McGregor and Lukas Gage.

Look, I love a good ‘leave your brain in a jar and just enjoy’ as much as anyone, so I have no real issue with Gyllenhaal beating up another ton of baddies.

What say you all?

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….
