Face/Off Reboot Incoming From Paramount. Sigh.



Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures is giving a face lift to Face/Off, the 1997 John Woo-directed action thriller that starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. The studio will reboot the film, with new cast. Oren Uziel has been set to write the script, and Neal Moritz will produce and David Permut will be executive producer.

Given a fairly preposterous-sounding premise, the original film was a wild ride. Travolta played FBI agent Sean Archer, who is obsessed with catching a homicidal sociopath named Castor Troy, who is responsible for killing the fed’s son. The agent undergoes facial transplant surgery and takes the mug of his nemesis so he can be sent to prison to find out the bomb’s whereabouts and stop an attack. The plan goes awry when the bad guy wakes up and takes the face of the FBI agent. Soon, the new-faced Castor visits the agent with the villainous face and takes glee in taunting him, telling him that the face surgeons have been killed, that the good guy is stuck with the face he hates most, and that the villain is going home to bed his wife and take over his home life. It escalates into a series of choreographed action sequences, and by the time it was over, the film became Woo’s biggest his with a $245 million global gross. Mike Werb and Michael Colleary wrote the original.

Uziel’s credits range from 22 Jump Street to The Cloverfield Paradox and Sonic the Hedgehog. Deal gives Paramount the opportunity to exploit its library, which it has done with Mission: Impossible film series and the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick.

Writ Large and Myman Greenspan Fox rep Uziel.
Face/Off worked because of Cage, Travolta, and John Woo. Since this will presumably have none of them involved, why? I know nobody should be surprised by yet another Hollywood reboot, but ya know.

And I appreciate I don't have to watch it so it won't really matter, but it's still worth bringing up.

Hope they don't make the mistake of other reboots which is thinking the plot devise was the only factor.

Hope they don't sell this movie based on the operation only. while the operation scene and premise of the movie with the face switching was key, it was the story about the murder of the protagonist son and how it made him obsessed enough to stop the antagonist terrorism.

Hey, Face/Off is as good as a D-tier action thriller starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage could be

So of course it needs a remake!

I totally agree. Some novies don’t need to be remade. The acting was phenomenal. No one can play thos roles better than Travolta and Cage.

The plot was fucking stupid, what made the movie great was Cage and Travolta going over the top. There is no way this will work with two different actors
