Nicolas Cage has given a brief update on the planned sequel to one of the 1990s wildest action movies – and he might just be involved in Face/Off 2.

Nicolas Cage is – you might have noticed – enjoying something of a revival these days. Whilst the series of non-studio films he’s made in the last ten years still boast legions of fans, and rightly so, the actor’s return to major motion pictures seems long overdue. That return seems set to continue with Cage revisiting one of his most iconic roles from the 1990s, the unhinged villain Caster Troy from 1997’s Face/Off.

Whilst talking to Comic BookCage was asked about the possibility of reprising any of his former roles and whilst indicating that he wouldn’t appear in any more National Treasure films, a Face/Off sequel continues to look like a likely prospect.

Said Cage, “there have been some phone calls with Neal [Moritz], who I enjoyed very much working with on the first Face/Off. He’s one of the true great producers in Hollywood, and they have been making some calls. The other ones like National Treasure, their priority was a TV show and godspeed to them, but maybe Face/Off.”

This certainly chimes with what Adam Wingard has said about the project since Paramount announced that the Godzilla Vs Kong director was attached to the project. Wingard has also talked about how fun it would be to revisit both Cage and Travolta’s characters, alongside some newer and presumably younger ones too.

Whilst not a confirmation yet, it certainly keeps the flame alive for Face/Off fans that we’ll see a true sequel to John Woo’s beloved action movie. We’ll let you know as we hear more.
