Gage is currently promoting “Road House”, which will premiere on March 21 on the Amazon Prime Video streaming platform. During an appearance on “SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show,” he revealed that he recently finished filming the sequel “Smile” from 2022.

“I don’t want to reveal anything. If you loved the first film, you will love this one too,” he assured. “It’s terrifying. It was the first time I was on a set where I was really scared, and I got sick in one take.”

The actor noted that he was surprised by his body’s reaction. However, between takes he suddenly had to give up the contents of his stomach. “I didn’t expect (to react like that). It was just so gruesome, so disgusting,” Gage said. He assured once again that the film is terrifying.
