Jake Gyllenhaal is sharing glimpses at his intense physical transformation for Road House.

On Wednesday, the actor, 43, shared behind-the-scenes photos from the upcoming film on Instagram, including a snapshot of the actor taking an ice bath in what appears to be a large garbage bin.

The photos include a selfie Gyllenhaal took with members of the stunt team, as well as shots of him working out and filming on set.

"We had an incredible crew on this film and an amazing team capturing images and video throughout our time in the DR!" Gyllenhaal wrote in a caption to the photos. "So much more to come!"

Road House, which Prime Video describes as a "high-octane, adrenaline-filled reimagining" of the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie, released its first trailer last week. The movie stars Gyllenhaal as a former UFC fighter named Dalton, who takes a job as a bar bouncer at a roadhouse in the Florida Keys after his professional fighting days end.

After Dalton takes on his job at the roadhouse and begins intimidating some of the bars' rowdy clients, he and its owner (Jessica Williams) are threatened by a group of men who want to take the property for themselves. This includes MMA fighter Conor McGregor in his first-ever movie role.

"In the studio, putting the finishing touches on @roadhousemovie and feeling fortunate to have worked with so many talented folks throughout the making of this film," he wrote at the time. "Over the next few weeks, can’t wait to share some of the preparation, people and moments that have made this one so much fun!"
