THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS Director Rob Cohen to Helm ROAD HOUSE Remake

     November 24, 2013


While the Fast & Furious franchise is currently on its seventh installment and fourth director, the series was first kicked into gear with 2001’s The Fast and the Furious as a street racing film from director Rob Cohen.  He went on to direct the over-the-top actioner xXx and last year’s James Patterson adaptation Alex Cross, but now he has his sights set on a remake of a 1980s favorite.  The Wrap reports that Cohen will helm a redo of the 1989 Patrick Swayze pic Road House for MGM.  The original film revolved around a charming bouncer with a mysterious past who is hired to tame a rather dingy dive bar. Michael Stokes wrote the script for the remake.
