John Travolta has been talking of some ideas for future projects at the opening of the Zurich Film Festival and they include a potential reunion with Face/Off director John Woo.

“I’m also considering doing a US film about the football coach Vince Lombardi, who coached my dad [Salvatore Travolta] before he went professional,” Travolta said. “I would play Vince Lombardi.” Legendary coach Lombardi is best known as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960s when he led them to three straight league championships and the first two Super Bowls. The Super Bowl trophy is named in his honour. He’s also “entertaining the possibility of doing” a remake of the John Woo film The Killer. The 1989 action film - which starred Chow Yun Fat - is to be produced by Woo. It looks like despite Travolta’s age, his appetite for films isn’t letting up just yet. As well as big talk surrounding his future endevours, the action thriller Killing Season, in which he stars alongside Robert De Niro is in post production and set for a 2013 release. Set in the remote Smoky Mountain wilderness, the film sees two veterans of the Bosnian War, one American, one Serbian, come to blows.

It wasn’t long ago that the Pulp Fiction actor was ready to pack it in: "I lost my son a few years ago and I had been having quite a time of that and after three years getting a lot of support from my church and a lot of support from people, fans, family I decided that it was OK to go back to work because I'd even thought of retiring at one point because it felt like too much," he told BBC Breakfast.
