The script for the Scarface remake that was recently turned in by David Ayer (Training Day) is now undergoing a rewrite by Oscar-nominated writer, Paul Attanasio (Donnie Brasco).  The story is expected to be a blend of director Howard Hawks’ 1932 version and Brian De Palma’s 1983 classic starring Al Pacino.  Deadline reports that Universal Pictures has yet to release the central character’s ethnic and geographic origin, characteristics which were central to past iterations.  Keep an eye out for more developments on the new imagining Scarface and click here to get caught up on our previous coverage.
