Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in a Road House sequel announced by Amazon MGM Studios on Tuesday.

During the studio’s inaugural upfronts presentation, the sequel plans were unveiled following the first film earning nearly 80 million worldwide viewers after debuting March 21 on Prime Video. Gyllenhaal will reprise his role as ex-UFC fighter Dalton.

“I am so ready, like I love this character, I love this world, I love the thing that we’ve created, and I can’t wait to bring more,” the Gyllenhaal told the upfonts presentation. Other plot details for the Road House sequel are being kept under wraps.

Amazon said the remake of the 1989 action classic, which starred Patrick Swayze, was its biggest global movie launch ever. And for the first time for a feature film, Amazon reported 50 million viewers had watched the film in its opening two weekends.

That made the project Amazon MGM Studios’ most-watched produced film debut ever on a worldwide basis. Road House made headlines ahead of its debut when director Doug Liman said he would skip its South by Southwest premiere in protest of the film not going to theaters.

He ultimately acquiesced and was on-hand for the bow of the film, which also made headlines when producer Joel Silver’s relationship with Amazon abruptly ended in November ahead of the debut, though he had already completed work on the film.

It’s unclear if Liman will be involved in the sequel, as no filmmaking deals are in place, according to sources.

Gyllenhaal starred in the original film as Dalton, who is hired to be the bouncer of a bar in the Florida Keys.
