Amazon Sets 2024 Dates For ‘Roadhouse’ Remake, ‘Red One’, ‘My Spy: The Eternal City’, And More

2024 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Amazon Studios, with several huge, star-studded films coming up that will find their way to Prime Video. And now we know when many of those projects will arrive, whether its direct to streaming or preceded by a theatrical release.

The first is Roadhouse, Doug Liman’s remake of the Patrick Swayze action classic. Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the lead role of an ex-MMA fighter who takes a dangerous gig as a bouncer.  The film is set to hit Prime Video on March 31st.  Conor McGregor, Daniela Melchior, Billy Magnussen, Jessica Williams, and Joaquim De Almeida co-star.

Here’s the new synopsis: In this adrenaline-fueled reimagining of the ’80s cult classic, ex-UFC fighter Dalton (Jake Gyllenhaal) takes a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse, only to discover that this paradise is not all it seems.

Streaming to Prime Video on May 2nd is The Idea of You. This is the “Anne Hathaway falls in love at Coachella” movie, directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick) and co-starring Nicholas Galitzine as a Harry Styles-esque boyband member.

Here’s the synopsis: Based on the acclaimed, contemporary love story of the same name, The Idea of You centers on Solène (Anne Hathaway), a 40-year-old single mom who begins an unexpected romance with 24-year-old Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine), the lead singer of August Moon, the hottest boy band on the planet. When Solène must step in to chaperone her teenage daughter’s trip to the Coachella Music Festival after her ex bails at the last minute, she has a chance encounter with Hayes, and there is an instant, undeniable spark. As they begin a whirlwind romance, it isn’t long before Hayes’ superstar status poses unavoidable challenges to their relationship, and Solène soon discovers that life in the glare of his spotlight might be more than she bargained for.

Next up is Christmas action-comedy Red One, and when you hear the stars you’ll know why it’s getting a theatrical release on November 15th. Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans lead the film which reunites Johnson with Jumanji director Jake Kasdan plus Hobbs & Shaw writer Chris Morgan. They’re doing a really good job of keeping plot details about this one under wrapping paper, too.

The Marvels director Nia DaCosta is already wrapping up on her next film, Hedda, a reimagining of Henrik Ibsen’s famed play Hedda Gabler. DaCosta will reunite with star Tessa Thompson, who she worked with previously on Little Woods and the aforementioned MCU film. Hedda will arrive in Q3 or Q4 of 2024.

Also arriving in the latter part of 2024 is sequel My Spy: The Eternal City, reuniting Dave Bautista and Chloe Coleman in the espionage comedy. Once again directed by Peter Segal, the film finds Bautista’s spy character JJ accompanying his young charge Sophie on her school trip to Italy. New additions to the franchise include Anna Faris, Ken Jeong, and Craig Robinson.

And following 2022’s The Greatest Beer Run Ever, director Peter Farrelly reunites with Zac Efron for Ricky Stanicky, which arrives on March 7th on Prime Video. Efron is joined by John Cena in the film about an imaginary character dreamed up by friends to blame for all of their shenanigans. When their partners decide they want to meet this Ricky Stanicky person, the friends hire a washed-up actor to play him.
