- Road House remake to star Jake Gyllenhaal
- Film will receive an R rating due to violence
- Gyllenhaal’s role in the movie could boost its success
The upcoming Road House remake, which will see Jake Gyllenhaal taking on the leading role, has been granted an R rating by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The reason for the rating is reportedly the “violence throughout” the film.
In the original 1989 movie, Patrick Swayze starred as a bouncer hired to restore order to a violent bar. The remake will see Gyllenhaal stepping into the role, which is expected to bring widespread attention to the film. His involvement alone may be enough to guarantee the movie’s success, given his previous roles in critically acclaimed films like Nightcrawler and Brokeback Mountain.
By giving the Road House remake an R rating, the MPAA is preparing audiences for a film that features a significant amount of violence. The rating system ensures that viewers understand both the content and the intended audience of a movie, and an R rating means that children under 17 will require an accompanying adult to view the film.
