Michael B. Jordan In Talks To Star In The ‘Scarface’ Reboot
It appears that Luca Guadagnino’s Scarface reboot may have found its Tony Montana. According to Daniel Richtman, Michael B. Jordan is in talks to star in the film.
Casting Jordan in the role is a surprising move, given the character of Tony Montana is of Cuban heritage. Many fans had previously fan-cast actors such as Pedro Pascal and Oscar Isaac in the role. Richtman did not reveal what stage of negotiations the talks with Jordan are, so it will be interesting to see if he ultimately gets the part.

According to the casting breakdown, Tony is born with an iron will and shrewd moxie. He claws his way out of poverty in Mexico to become one of the biggest cocaine dealers in America. As a young child on the streets, Tony is recruited by a sadistic drug dealer who moves him to a training camp where he learns the ways of the drug trade. Eventually, he and his friends escape to Los Angeles, where his skills help propel him up the ladder of success.
In May, it was announced that Guadagnino would direct the reboot. The screenplay is being penned by the Coen Brothers, who have previously worked on Fargo (1996), The Big Lebowski (1998), and True Grit (2010). Additionally, Scarface will be produced by Dylan Clark (The Batman), Scott Stuber (Ted), and Marco Morabito (I Am Love).
