John Woo on The Killer remake losing Lupita Nyong’o and Face/Off reboot

So apparently, Mr. John Woo continues to be eager on directing a remake of his THE KILLER, nonetheless I used to be unaware that Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o was hooked up to star. Nicely, that second half now not issues as a result of based on the director, she needed to depart the mission:

“There was a scheduling drawback as a result of she’s so fashionable proper now!” mentioned Woo about Nyong’o’s exit. “We rewrote the script and it took a lot time…she needed to depart for one more mission.”

That kinda stinks as a result of Nyong’o, in my humble opinion, would have been superior within the function! Woo now must discover a new face… and talking of faces… Paramount had just lately said their plans to reboot John Woo’s supercharged motion car FACE/OFF which starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Sadly for these hoping that Woo can be helming the reboot, he revealed that he wasn’t knowledgeable concerning the studio’s plans and gained’t be concerned in it. Nonetheless, he did truly give you a sequel thought some time in the past and continues to be glad there’s a new model being created from his personal masterpiece (and sure, that film IS a f*cking masterpiece!). 

Lastly, I assume we’re going for the trifecta in disappointing John Woo information as a result of we additionally discovered that he was additionally requested a very long time in the past by grasp Stan Lee to do a superhero film (pre-MCU) and Woo mentioned no. Extra exactly, this is what he mentioned:

“I don’t have that present,” he admitted. “I’m not a sci-fi man — I don’t suppose I may make one. There’s a lot creativeness… I don’t suppose I can attain that degree.”

I respectfully disagree, but it surely ain’t as much as me! Whereas we’re engaged on Woo, I would prefer to ask what number of of you noticed and loved his different John Travolta-starring actioner, BROKEN ARROW? Be happy to remark beneath.
