Nicholas Cage recently revived many of his iconic film roles in the meta action-comedy, The Unbearable Weight of Many Talents. One of those scenes saw the Cage spoof at the end of Front/Left, the 1997 John Woo sci-fi action thriller co-starring John Travolta. As it turns out, Cage was approached about making an actual sequel to Front/Left.
“I think so Front/Left is a sequel that lends itself to a lot of twists and turns and unpredictability,” Cage said in an interview with Collider. “It’s like if you factor in the idea that the descendants of Castor (Cage) and Sean (Travolta) have children and these children grow up, then it becomes like three-dimensional chess, and then not only the two, John Travolta and myself, four of us ping-pong and go to different levels, and it becomes more complicated. I think there is a lot of fertile ground there.
Cage explained that he had a meeting about the potential Face/Lost 2, but no plans have been finalized. “I may have had a meeting in an office, but I haven’t heard anything since, so I don’t know,” he said. Still, it seems previous reports in a sequel, the actor offered the director Adam Wingard (Godzilla vs. Kong) as a potential project management designation. “He’s great, and I think we like it the same way,” Cage said. “We have the same feelings. I love everything he does Godzilla vs. Kong and I think he’s smart. He has respect for cinema and different types of iconography. I think it is very good. “
