In Gyllenhaal’s remake, the American star plays the role of an ex-UFC fighter turned doorman.

It is not yet known what role McGregor will play and whether it will be fictional or as himself.

Although it has put a halt to his preparations to return to the UFC this year with his comeback bout now eyed in 2023.

The former two-division champion has spent the year recovering from the gruesome injury.

But it allowed for him to take his talents to the big screen, Tim Simpson, who works for Paradigm Management, revealed.

Simpson told MMA Junkie: “A fun little venture then switching back to climbing the mountain again.

“It fits in perfectly. He’s still on track for a big return next year.”
