FACE/OFF Sequel In The Works From GODZILLA VS. KONG Director Adam Wingard

FACE/OFF Sequel In The Works From GODZILLA VS. KONG Director Adam Wingard

Though original reports pegged it as a remake, Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard has now clarified that he is working on a direct sequel to John Woo's preposterous '90s action thriller, Face/Off.

Godzilla Vs. Kong helmer Adam Wingard is set to write and direct a Face/Off sequel for Paramount.

Variety originally reported that the fan-favorite filmmaker was working on a remake of John Woo's 1997 action thriller, but Wingard and the project's co-writer Simon Barrett later took to social media to clarify that it's actually going to be a direct sequel.

The original starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage as an FBI special agent and a terrorist, respectively, who literally swap faces and assume each others' identities (against the former's will). It's generally seen as a silly, but fun diversion, and has gained a strong cult following over the years.

As far as we know, Travola and Cage will not be reprising their roles, as the movie is expected to "have a brand new cast." Whether that means different actors will be brought in to play Sean Archer and Castor Troy is unclear.

What do you guys make of this news? Do you consider Face/Off to be an action classic, or a load of nonsense? Or both? Drop us a comment in the usual place, and please enjoy the following video.
