Jake Gyllenhaal has talked up the fight sequences in Road House, describing them as like nothing we've ever seen before.

The movie is a remake of the 1989 hit of the same name starring Patrick Swayze.

The official premise reads:

'A former UFC middleweight fighter ends up working at a roadhouse in the Florida Keys where things are not as they seem.'

Like the original, the movie will include extended fight sequences, and the fact that the movie features UFC star Conor McGregor makes those scenes all the more intriguing.

"(Director Doug Liman) always does action in a different way, and he came to me and said, 'I want to do fights in a way that has never been done before,'" Gyllenhaal told TotalFilm.

"He became pretty much obsessed with how the punches would land, and the kicks would land. He didn’t want them to be performed in the way that we have for audiences in the past with that kind of fighting."

Conor McGregor acting debut

McGregor is making his acting debut in Road House and will play an antagonist who goes up against Elwood Dalton, played by Gyllenhaal.

The Irishman revealed recently that he probably has some enemies in Hollywood after ignoring several pleas to star in previous movies in Tinseltown.

"I had turned down a good few roles in my time on the climb," he said.

"I’ve had directors show up at fight camp, really beautiful directors doing really top-end movies… And over and over, they’d come to me, and I always turned them down… I’d leave people a little high and dry. I probably have a few enemies out there that I don’t really know of because I had said, 'I might do it.'"
