Help needed, want to change angle of face.

Hello Friends!
Got this photo today, the client asks to change the angle of face so that the man is looking front at the camera. Unfortunately, there is no reference photo. Any suggestions? Thanks.

In my opinion, kinda impossible retouch to do, but if you succeed to turn his head straight to camera, I really want to see the picture. =D You could manipulate his eyes to look at camera and ask client if its okay?

Sorry guys, re-shoot is not an option I've been working on this image for last 2 weeks but no satisfactory results yet. Hope I'll find a face very similar to this one in google

Look the client straight in the face and say it can't be done.
I agree with the others, retake the photo is the solution.

Pish.... It can totally be done.

Get Maya or 3d Studio Max and use the provided photo as a reference for face structure. Model a new face and neck to match the body positioning, or heck, change the body too if the client wants. This should only take about a week to get a photo realistic mesh (assuming you know the software and are a good character modeler already). Take another week for render or rent a render farm for a day. Comp the new render into the old image.

aka

about $15,000 dollars, give or take a few g's. Easy nuff.

Sounds pretty easy why this didn't come to my mind, my client who is almost crying to pay 15$ for this wouldn't mind shedding away 15000$....
