The original action movie told the story of two fierce enemies, FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) and terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage). For various reasons and under changing circumstances, they each undergo surgery so that they have the other character's face. It's bizarre and very good.

There is no word on how closely the new movie will follow to the plot of the original. As for the writer, Uziel also wrote The Cloverfield Paradox, as well as the upcoming movies Sonic the Hedgehog and the Detective Pikachu sequel.

No word yet on who will direct or star in the Face/Off reboot, when it will shoot, or when it will release, but keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest news about people swapping faces.
