Henry Golding says fans are in for a wild ride with his upcoming G.I. Joe spinoff, Snake Eyes!

ET's Nischelle Turner spoke with the actor at the New York premiere of his new holiday movie, Last Christmas, on Tuesday, where he hinted at just how action-packed Snake Eyes is going to be.

"Amazing! It is phenomenal," he exclaimed when asked about how the work-in-progress is coming along. "Like, the stuff that we've prepared for everyone, I'm being beat up on a regular basis. So, I'm barely on crutches at the moment… I cannot wait for people to actually see it."

ET confirmed in August that Golding was in talks for the prestigious titular role -- a mysterious ninja commando whose face is always masked and never speaks, begging lots of questions concerning Golding's portrayal. Just this month, filming got underway on the project in Vancouver.

"We've got a little holiday break, but I'm still going to be keeping fit," he shared of the role. "Physically, super, super demanding. I've never experienced anything like it." Golding offered an update on when the shoot could wrap, stating, "I think we're gonna finish around February. Hopefully we stay on track for an October release."

In addition to Golding, the film will also star Ready or Not star Samara Weaving as Scarlett, another member of the elite antiterrorism team at the center of the film, according to Variety.

On the red carpet Monday, the actor also shared his excitement for Last Christmas, which co-stars Game of Thrones alum Emilia Clarke as Kate, a downtrodden seasonal retail employee whose life takes a charming and unexpected turn when she meets Tom, played by Golding.

"I love making movies!" he gushed, later teasing, "Last Christmas is going to hit so many people right where it hurts and be with them for a long time and make such an impact. So, I can't wait for everyone to enjoy this one."

Last Christmas arrives on Nov. 8 and Snake Eyes will make its way to theaters on Oct. 16, 2020.
