Pedro Pascal has revealed that he’d love to reunite with The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent co-star Nicolas Cage for director Adam Wingard’s action movie sequel, Face/Off 2.
Pascal’s latest comments came during an interview with GQ as he talked about his role as a Nicolas Cage super-fan in the upcoming meta-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. During the interview, Pascal commented on the idea of joining the casts of Face/Off 2. He said, “Yes. Yes I would. [Laughs.] I mean, really just a straightforward answer. Yes. I rattle off so many movies that were from the ‘80s, before I graduated high school, so the impression that they left on me obviously was so big. But then of course, once you get into the ‘90s and Leaving Las Vegas and then into Face/Off, it’s a whole other level of admiration. All of that is to say yes: I would like to be a part of Face/Off 2.”
Although we don’t know a lot about the upcoming sequel, Pascal is currently one of the most popular actors thanks to his works in recent years including the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, Narcos and Wonder Woman 1984 and The Equalizer 2. As a result, Pascal will be a welcome addition to the Face/Off sequel.
Released back in 1997, the first Face/Off follows story of FBI Agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) who undergoes experimental plastic surgery in an attempt to impersonate his son’s killer Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage). The story takes a twist after Castor awakens from a coma and goes through the same procedure to impersonate Sean.
Although the movie was a major box office success, there hasn’t been any discussions regarding a sequel for a long time. However, the movie is currently in the pipeline for Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard who hinted that Nicolas Cage will return. During a recent AMA on Reddit, Cage replied positively when asked if he’d return to reprise the character.
During the AMA he said, “Face/Off is my favorite action movie, largely because we had the maestro John Woo to direct. The process was a matter of getting video of Travolta’s dailies and trying to study it so I could copy his voice and movements. John Travolta conversely did the same with my dailies.”
