In another example (there are so many!) of science following John Woo movies, the BBC reports face transplants ‘now possible’:

Surgeons appear to be gearing up to carry out the world’s first face transplant.

British doctors say they have been approached by 10 patients keen to find out more about the procedure.

Surgeons in France and the United States say they are now ready to graft the face of a dead person on to someone who has been facially disfigured.

Graft a face from a dead person? Kind of yuck.

On the other hand, where else are you going to get a face?
