Recently, director Adam Wingard (“ Godzilla vs Kong ”) was hired to direct the sequel to “ The Other Face, ” a classic action thriller movie directed by John Woo in 1997.
In the plot of the original, FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) exchanges his identity – and his face – with terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) in an effort to orchestrate a top-secret intelligence mission in the war on terrorism.
And it seems that Wingard wants to continue the plot of the two characters, even after the death of Troy, murdered by Archer while trying to betray him.
During an interview with Uproxx, the filmmaker discussed the possibilities of the sequel.
However, that doesn’t mean Cage and Travolta are going to reprise their roles;
“This time, we are going to work on the issues that involve technological mechanics when using the face change… Does your voice change? Are your moods changing? There are always ways to approach this kind of thing… ”
“We’re trying to address that in this movie, because the original happened over 20 years ago. So the technology used at that time has also evolved, so let’s find a way to fix things. But that’s exactly what I can say, so far. I don’t want to spoil the surprises we are preparing.
Apparently, Wingard still intends to follow the story of Troy and Archer, but with other stars who bring them to life.
Previously, he had told Deadline that what matters is not the appearance of the characters, but the essence of who they are.
“To me, The Other Face isn’t about surgery or anything like that. It is not about the world in which the characters exist. They are Sean Archer and Castor Troy. That’s what this movie is about. This is the continuation of this story. It is difficult to talk about anything else, but it is, for me, the definitive continuation of this saga. “, Did he declare.
Neal Moritz (“Fast and Furious” franchise) produces. David Permut will be the executive producer.
The original feature film was released in 1997. Remember the synopsis:
Obsessed with the idea of bringing terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage) to justice, FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) finds him and discovers that he boarded a plane for Los Angeles. After a tragic fall, Troy is seriously injured and Archer undergoes surgery to remove his face and replace it with that of the criminal. When Archer attempts to use his disguise to get information from Troy’s brother about a bomb, the criminal awakens from his coma and forces the doctor who performed the operation to give him the officer’s face.
The film not only became a critical success (reaching 92% approval on Rotten Tomatoes), but it also made a huge splash at the global box office, raising over $ 245 million.
