SCARFACE Remake to Be Rewritten by Paul Attanasio

     October 16, 2012


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.

    If they were to remake scarface they should make as different to the De Palma’s version as De Palma”s version is to Hawks’s. I don’t want to see a shot for shot remake even if its fantastic, put it in a different setting or something. Do something new with a similar story so people forget its a remake like they did with the 1983 version

      For sure – take it the next step forward.
      What about a short haired Tom Hardy as Scarface?

    Why? The first remake was perfect, why they feel the need to do another one other than cash grab? Dare I say this is gonna flop big time?
