Say hello to my little friend… AGAIN.
Antoine Fuqua, director of Training Day, has his eyes set on remaking Scarface for the modern audiences of today; feeling unsatisfied with Brian De Palma and Al Pacino’s 1983 cult classic hit.
Fuqua, impatiently awaiting next month’s hyped-up remake of The Magnificent Seven, plans on taking the classic rags-to-riches story of power, greed, crime, and corruption from Miami to Los Angeles. Jonathan Herman (Compton) wrote the screenplay, picking up where Paul Attanasio and David Ayer left off in the previous version.
Universal Studios will distribute the production, which is likely still several months from being filmed.
We’re not always keen on do-overs, especially since it’s a remake of a remake (Howard Hawks directed the 1932 original)… but Scarface is such a classic that you can bet your ass we’ll have a watch.
