John Woo’s 1997 sci-fi action flick Face/Off pitted John Travolta and Nicolas Cage – and their faces – against each other.

Travolta played an FBI agent who has the face of Nicolas Cage transplanted over his in order to impersonate the guy and find the location of a bomb that threatens Los Angeles. All of Los Angeles – big bomb!

It was a very cool romp, and now we’re set to face a remake, according to Deadline.

22 Jump Street – and forthcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie – writer Oren Uziel has been drafted in to get a new script happening.

The big question is, however, can such a nuts premise work without that special crazy that Cage brought to proceedings?

We guess we’ll find out sometime in the near-ish future.

Here’s a look back at the original:
