It was announced just over a year ago that Adam Wingard (V/H/S, You’re Next, The Guest, Blair Witch, Godzilla vs. Kong) had been hired to direct a new take on John Woo’s 1997 action-thriller Face/Off for Paramount, being billed as a sequel to the original movie that starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. What’s the latest update on that one, you ask?

In a new interview, Wingard reiterates to Empire that his upcoming Face/Off movie is very much an “absolute sequel” to the first movie. Furthermore, he hopes he can get Cage back!

Wingard tells Empire, “[Nicolas Cage is] just having such a moment. Even before Pig came out, we saw this as a Nicolas Cage movie. That’s become totally the obvious way to go now. A couple of years ago, the studio maybe would have wanted a hot, young, up-and-coming actor or something. Now, Nicolas Cage is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood again.”

“We’re really honing in on it,” Wingard says of the script he’s writing with partner Simon Barrett. “We’re not going to share it until everybody’s like, ‘This is the one.’”

At this time, Cage is not yet attached. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.

The original film starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage as an FBI agent and a sadistic terrorist who quite literally swap faces. “In order to foil a terrorist plot, an FBI agent undergoes facial transplant surgery and assumes the identity of a criminal mastermind, who murdered his only son. The plan turns sour when the criminal wakes up prematurely and seeks revenge.”

Producers on the reimagining include Neal Moritz and David Permut.

The annual “Ghostbusters Day” kicked off today with the news that a brand new animated series is being developed for Netflix, and as promised, more announcements have been made.

During a special “Ghostbusters Day” event tonight, Ghostbusters: Afterlife duo Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan announced that an animated FEATURE FILM is also in the works!

Jennifer Kluska and Chris Prynoski are directing the animated movie, written by Brenda Hsueh. It will be an all-new take on the franchise, featuring all-new characters.

“This was a passion project of my father’s and it’s easy to understand why. The world of the unknown can only be properly explored through the limitless reach of animation,” Reitman said.

Additionally, a fifth live action feature film was confirmed by Reitman during the “Ghostbusters Day” event, which will be set in Manhattan. The film’s code name is “Firehouse.”

The upcoming movie is said to be the “next chapter in the Spenger family story.”

Reitman also announced that Dark Horse will be telling a “unique story” with a limited edition Ghostbusters comic series next year, in-canon and part of the original movie’s continuity.
