Will it contain throat rips?

MGM have reportedly hired Rob Cohen (‘Alex Cross,’ ‘The Fast and the Furious,’ ‘xXx’) to take the director’s chair for a remake of the 1989 cult classic ‘Roadhouse.’

Starring Patrick Swayze, Kelly Lynch and Sam Elliott, the original followed James Dalton (Swayze), a professional “cooler” (head bouncer) with a mysterious past who is hired to tame a dirty bar in Missouri only to find himself falling foul of a corrupt businessman (played by Ben Gazzara).

The screenplay for the remake comes from Michael Stokes (‘Crash Bandits’). Matt Dines will oversee development for the studio.
