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.
The original film starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage as an FBI agent and a sadistic terrorist who quite literally swap faces, but Paramount’s reboot will feature a new cast.
In John Woo’s movie:
“An FBI agent undergoes a facial transplant surgery in order to foil a terrorist plot and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same terrorist impersonates the FBI agent.”
Neal Moritz will produce, with David Permut executive producing.
