Scarface is one of the most influential films in cinematic history. Its dialogue is recognized and referenced on a daily basis in music and various TV shows. However, many moviegoers know that the 1983 Al Pacino-starring film is a remake of the 1932 Howard Hughes film. As first reported by Variety, Scarface will once again receive the reboot treatment with Call Me By Your Name‘s Luca Guadagnino set for the director’s chair.
Per the initial report, the film’s screenplay is penned by Joel and Ethan Coen. The Coen brothers have quite the extensive filmmaking résumé. The duo’s fingerprints can be found on a bevy of classic films like Fargo (1996), The Big Lebowski (1998), and True Grit (2010). Most recently, the Coens wrote and directed the critically acclaimed Netflix film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, starring Tim Blake Nelson.
Scarface will be produced by Dylan Clark (The Batman), Scott Stuber (Ted), and Marco Morabito (I Am Love). At this time, no actors are attached to the iconic role of Tony Montana. However, many fans have fan cast performers like Oscar Isaac and Pedro Pascal online.
Up next for Luca Guadagnino is the upcoming thriller Born To be Murdered, starring John David Washington. The filmmaker also recently revealed that sequel to Call Me By Your Name was in development with Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer returning.
