Lukas Gage Co-Wrote The Upcoming Queer Sex Comedy ‘Down Low’

The White Lotus and You star Lukas Gage co-wrote the upcoming queer sex comedy Down Low with close pal and I Know What You Did Last Summer story editor Phoebe Fisher. The film stars Gage alongside Zachary Quinto, Simon Rex, Audra McDonald, and Judith Light and marks the feature directorial debut of two-time SAG Award nominee Rightor Doyle, who played flamboyantly gay acting student/roommate Nick Nicholby in HBO’s Barry.

In the film, Gary (Quinto) hires Cameron (Gage), a spirited and boundary-free sex worker to give him an erotic massage. When Cameron learns how inexperienced middle-aged Gary is, he becomes determined to deliver a crash course in unapologetic queer life. Cameron’s agenda of hookup apps and gay nomenclature quickly causes the day to take several riotously obscure turns as the pair endure a nosy, pill-popping neighbor, a dark web intruder, and more in a hilarious evening of consequences and confrontation.

Gage told Vulture that when he and Fisher started writing Down Low, they knew the movie would contain two specific things: a threesome and a dead body. Everything else was up for grabs.

The film was inspired by Pretty Woman and His Girl Friday, albeit a more “unhinged” take.

“Originally, we really wanted a fast-paced, fucked-up rom-com. But it was always about two very different people that are in this larger-than-life, crazy circumstance and what they learn from one another within this 24-hour period,” Gage said. “There’s a little bit more heart in this version. It was needing a little bit more of a soul and a little bit more redeemability from the characters.”

Down Low isn’t a story about sex work per se, but it is one about two people who find lawless harmony despite leading two wildly different lives.

Raucous queer comedy Down Low is due out on demand on October 10 via Sony Pictures.
