Nicolas Cage will come back to life in a Face/Off sequel expected to include the children of Castor Troy and Sean Archer

Nicolas Cage claims that the ‘Face/Off’ sequel will feature the children of Castor Troy and Sean Archer.

The 59-year-old actor may not be sure of his future in the Spider-Man franchise, but he is game to reprise his role in Adam Wingard’s sequel to the 1997 action thriller and claims that the offspring of his and John Travolta’s characters will be involved in the new flick.

Speaking to Collider, Nicolas said: ‘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,’ he explained. 

‘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.’

The Grande Isle star confirmed that he has had ‘one meeting’ about the film and  but nothing is set in stone.

The ‘Pig’ star said, ‘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.’

The Oscar winner’s character died in the original film but Adam, 40,  said that the new installment will be an ‘absolute sequel’ that will allow the actor to return.

‘He’s just having such a moment. Even before ‘Pig’ came out, we saw this as a Nicolas Cage movie.’

The actor who displayed his chops not only as an action star but comedic character in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is enjoying a new popularity in Hollywood. 

‘That’s become totally the obvious way to go now. A couple of years ago, the studio maybe would have wanted a hot, young, up-and-coming actor or something.’ 

‘Now, Nicolas Cage is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood again.’
