Nicolas Cage and John Travolta point guns at each other in a very tense stand-off.

The 1997 action flick Face/Off isn't necessarily a good movie, but I think it's a perfect movie. When it was announced that it would be getting a sequel from Adam Wingard, I was worried. Nicolas Cage said that the sequel will be more ridiculous than the first one.

It is one of the most over-the-top films ever made. Nicolas Travolta and John Cage were asked to play the most extreme versions of each other in Face/Off. The result is crazy.

The sequel sounds evenwilder. The children of John Travolta and Nicolas Cage's characters will swap faces with both of their fathers in the sequel.

I think Face/Off is a sequel that lends itself to a lot of twists and turns and unpredictability. It’s almost like if you factor in the idea of offspring and Castor and Sean having children and these children grow up, then it becomes like three-dimensional chess, and then it’s not just the two, John Travolta and myself, it’s four of us ping-ponging and going at different levels, and it becomes even more complex. I think there’s a lot of fertile ground there. I had maybe one meeting in an office, but I haven’t heard anything since, so I don’t know.

When asked if there was any evidence to support Cage's claim, SimonBarrett said yes.

It is not going to be entertaining, but it is going in the right direction, which is over the top.
