Paramount Remaking FACE/OFF For Some Reason - Tue 10 Sep 15:11 GMT

One of the most bombastic action movies of all time is John Woo's Face/Off starring Nicolas Cage and John Travolta. Now Paramount is going to remake it.

  The ’90s were replete with gloriously over-the-top action movies.

  And it was into this world that Hong Kong filmmaker John Woo broke into Hollywood.

  After his 1992 movie Hard Boiled (still a classic of the cop genre), Woo came to America for the Van Damme actioner Hard Target and the military thriller Broken Arrow.

  But it wasn’t until 1997 that Woo hit pay dirt with the most ’90s action movie ever.

  According to Deadline, Paramount will remake Face/Off with an Oren Uziel script.

  And a premise like that needed John Woo!

  Woo is a master of orchestrating action set pieces.
