March 19, 2024 - Movies

John Woo’s 1997 hit Face/Off stands out as one of the quintessential action movies, embodying the best of the 90s cinema. In 2019, Paramount Pictures excited fans with news of a new Face/Off movie in the works, and by 2021, it was confirmed to be a sequel, not a remake. Fans of Nicolas Cage have been eagerly anticipating Castor Troy and Sean Archer‘s return to the silver screen, and now the film’s helmer has an update. Adam Wingard has been attached to write and direct and has recently explained the reasons behind the delayed progress of the sequel.

In a recent interview with i09, director Adam Wingard opened up about his upcoming movie, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, set to premiere later this month. He shared insights into the anticipated sequel team-up between The Eighth Wonder of the World and the King of the Monsters, as well as his eagerly awaited adaptation of the 1980s cartoon series Thundercats. Additionally, Wingard provided an update for Face/Off fans on the progress of the sequel:

Almost in the middle of production [on Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire], we were finishing our draft of the script and because both of us were too busy working on other things there was a plan to do a rewrite, and we picked a writer to work on it. And then the writers’ strike happened so that delayed things. Right now that’s still inactive, so I think the plan with that one will be that writer will continue working, and whenever that draft is done, Simon and I will get it back and we’ll take another crack at it.
