McGregor will star alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Road House, a remake of the 1989 Hollywood classic. A release date for the film has yet to be announced as filming is in production.
This will be McGregor’s first appearance on the big screens after a successful Proper 12 Irish Whiskey business and other assets. He’s also anticipating a UFC return later this year, potentially against Michael Chandler or another top name.
Road House is an action film that features the story of a Missouri bar under siege by a corrupt businessman. The 1989 original starred Patrick Swayze and Kelly Lynch, to name a few.
Ahead of his Hollywood showcase, McGregor teased what his character will look like in the movie.
