    Ronda Rousey confirmed Wednesday that she will star in a reboot of the cult 1989 film Road House, assuming the lead role previously filled by Patrick Swayze.

    "It is a great honor to play a part in celebrating the life of a man that inspired so many. I couldn't be more grateful to have this opportunity to pay respect to the beloved Patrick Swayze," Rousey tweeted along with a link to Variety's story on the reboot. "I promise to work incessantly to make sure this project is a tribute his friends and family can be proud of."

    The original action film starred Swayze as a professional "cooler" at the Double Deuce, a saloon in a small town gripped by an evil businessman. Although critically gutted upon release, Road House gained a cult following for its throat-ripping ultraviolence, bizarre plot and tough-talking dialogue.

    According to Variety, Rousey was initially intrigued by the idea of a Road House reboot but first sought to gain the blessing of Swayze's widow Lisa Niemi, who gave the UFC star her approval. With Rousey and the Swayze estate on board, producers are now in the process of hiring writers to pen the reboot's script, with production set to begin in 2016.

  • I loved Road House and I'm disappointed I didn't mention it in the 80's movie thread. I'll watch the remake based on that alone.

  • No Jeff Healey on the soundtrack and/or on stage at the club so no watch for me.

    I will atleast wait for the trailer before making a judgment. It's not like the original Roadhouse didn't suck. But it was saved by campy 80s themes and gratuitous nudity. Can Ronda deliver?
