Who Is Ready For A Face/Off Remake?
Written by Smooth FM on September 10, 2019
Paramount Pictures is set to reboot the 1997 John Travolta/Nicolas Cage classic Face/Off.
The studio is set to shoot the film with an all new cast, and Oren Uziel will write the script. Uziel had written hit movies like Cloverfield Lane and 22 Jump Street
In the original story, John Travolta plays an FBI agent consumed by an obsession to catch a terrorist played by Nicolas Cage, who also happened to kill his son.
Travolta ends up getting facial transplant surgery to look like Cage for the sake of going to prison so he can learn where a bomb is and prevent it from blowing up. At the same time Cage (who had been knocked into a coma) awakens and takes the face/voice/life of Travolta’s original character.
Cage (as Travolta) then taunts Travolta (as Cage) by telling him that the surgeons who gave him his face have been killed and he’s now stuck looking like his least favorite person on the planet.
After that there’s a lot of action and the movie made more than triple its $80 million budget.
