A Scarface remake is in the works, so the next five generations of rappers can have posters of the movie in their homes. The film already has a script written by two-time Academy Award-nominee, Paul Attanasio, and a director is currently being courted.
So, just who is the lucky filmmaker? None other than Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín (No, Tony Manero) is in negotiations to helm the new Scarface project for Universal Pictures, The Wrap reports.
The newest iteration of Scarface will stay true to the immigrant element found in the original 1932 version and the vastly popular 1983 remake, but will be set in present day Los Angeles and track the rise of a Mexican immigrant looking to accomplish the American dream.
According to The Wrap, the filmmakers behind the project are looking to "cast an authentic Latino who is bilingual and bicultural as the lead character, whose name will be Tony, though his last name won't be Camonte (1932) or Montana (1983)."
