Apparently, BAFTA award-winning actor Jake Gyllenhaal is set to play the role of an ex-UFC fighter alongside real-life UFC champion Conor McGregor in the remake of the 1989 film, Road House.
McGregor recently shared pictures revealing the first look of the film and both he and Jake looked their part in this intense action-filled movie. The filming began in the Dominican Republic last summer.
This would be McGregor’s first film and Gyllenhaal’s first role as a UFC fighter. He is not new to fighting though since he has previously played a boxing champion in the film Southpaw.
