Scarface remake in the works

Wait, they’re remaking Scarface?!

Yup, and newly attached to the project by Universal is the writer for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, Jonathan Herman.

Now, hold on a second, how are they going to remake one of the most iconic movies and characters? There was only one Al Pacino as Tony Montana and the various scenes that came with it. Not to mention Miami in the 80s was the perfect setting. I guess I’ll be open to a new story, which reports say will be set in Los Angeles, but Al Pacino and Scarface is one of those rare 1 of 1’s that shouldn’t be touched.

The movie is still in its beginning stages (in fact, this is the third attempt at the script) so we’ll likely have some updates on the Scarface remake progress throughout the year.
