It was announced a while back that Adam Winguard was directing a new Face/Off movie. Most suspected it would be yet another reboot.
However Wingard said in an Instagram posting “I would NEVER re-imagine or remake FACE/OFF. It’s a perfect action movie. Simon Barrett and I are writing a direct SEQUEL! 🙂 :)”
It was first said that John Travolta and Nicolas Cage were not returning. However that now may not be the case. as in a recent interview with Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Winguard says they’re interested.
Some people just assume when I say that that it just means it takes place in the world of Face/Off. To me, Face/Off isn’t about a procedure or anything like that. It’s not about the world that the characters exist in. It’s about Sean Archer and it’s about Castor Troy. That’s what this movie is about. It’s the continuation of that story. It’s hard to talk about other than that but this is, to me, the definitive continuation of that saga.”
Apparently they’re ‘waiting on the script’. I don’t get that. It’s not like there’s another big studio knocking down these guys’ doors, is it? And it can’t be worse than their 15 year streak of VODmit releases.
Now John Woo though…
