The director behind “Godzilla vs Kong” takes on the action movie from the following 1990s.
variety He writes that Wingard is ready to direct a remake of John Woo’s “Face / Off” from 1997. In the original movie, we saw Nicolas Cage and John Travolta change faces in a thief and police chase with changing roles.
But the director himself explained on Instagram that this is not a new recording:
Wingard has worked mostly with action movies like “The Guest”, “You Next” and “Blair Witch”. Then, a monster lizard and a giant monkey are allowed to whip each other in the movie “Godzilla vs Kong” (cinema premiere at the end of March). As a director with roots in the horror genre, he can turn “Face / Off” into something darker and rougher than last time.
It is not clear what this new version is. We hope Wingard and his screenwriter Simon Barrett find a fun way to spin the story and take it into the modern era.
