Say hello to my little remake! Hollywood planning 'Scarface' reboot
First you get the money. Then you get the power. Then you do the remakes. Yeah, Hollywood is at it again, this time with plans to remake Scarface.
Deadline.com reports that Universal is in talks with Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Magnificent Seven) to helm a "re-imagining" of the Al Pacino masterpiece.
Of course, 1983's Scarface was in itself a remake of a 1932 movie, which just goes to prove that when the '80s borrows a good idea, at least it goes back 50 years in the past to do so.
According to Deadline, the new movie will be set in Los Angeles rather than Miami. As far as casting goes, Highsnobiety.com suggests these five actors could step in for Pacino: Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Benicio del Toro and Dominic Cooper.
Personally, we'd love to see Pacino return in some role, preferably as drug dealer Frank Lopez (played by Robert Loggia in the '83 version).
