Ronda Rousey to Star in Remake of ‘Road House’



This is a remake I would definitely watch. The original 1980′s ‘Road House’ movie was a cult classic as the late Patrick Swayze kicked some serious butt while being the cooler at the Double Deuce. Selecting Ronda Rousey in the starring role in a remake of ‘Road House’ would be perfect and completely believable. Ronda Rousey may not only be the baddest babe on the planet, she also is very kind on the eyes. But this 5 foot 4 inch little dynamo packs a mean punch and when that fails will put you in a submission hold that will be making you beg to tap out in seconds. Never has a girl gone from gorgeous to focused mean face like Ronda. She is the best in the business and personally, I’d rather see her fight than most any men’s boxing match. A remake of Road House would not work if the role of Dalton was cast as another male, but re-imaging the movie with a female and one like Ronda works. This has the possibilities of being a very good remake.

Ronda Rousey

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey is starring in MGM’s reboot of the 1980s cult classic “Road House.” Rousey will step into the role Patrick Swayze made famous.

Sources say MGM is currently meeting with screenwriters, with production set to begin in 2016.

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. Swayze’s character is put to the test when he needs to protect the town from a corrupt businessman.

The movie became a breakout hit and still has reached cult status today. This follows MGM’s reboot of another classic; the “Rocky” spinoff “Creed” hits theaters in November.

Rousey embraced the idea of starring in a remake, but wanted to be respectful when pursuing the project. Sources say Rousey recently reached out to Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi, to ask for her blessing, which Niemi gladly gave.
