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.

Hit the jump to relive Patrick Swayze badassery by way of the trailer for the original Road House, and start dream-casting actors suitable to fill Swayze’s shoes in the comments section.
