Wolf of Wall Street writer to tackle script for Antoine Fuqua's Scarface

Terence Winter is no stranger to tackling the criminal element after his work on The Sopranos, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and Boardwalk Empire (which he created), so it should come as no surprise that the writer is now set to board Antoine Fuqua 's remake of SCARFACE which will follow a Mexican immigrant fighting for his version of the American Dream in Los Angeles. Per...

Antoine Fuqua says his Scarface remake is more relevant than ever right now

Antoine Fuqua 's remake of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN hits theaters in just a few days but the director already has his eye on a remake of Brian De Palma 's SCARFACE. The 1983 crime drama which starred an over the top Al Pacino was itself a remake of a 1932 film which went by the same name, but Antoine Fuqua recently told Fandango that the story of an immigrant fighting for...

The third take on SCARFACE would take the premise of an immigrant rising to power from his meager beginnings into modern-day L.A.

Antoine Fuqua may say hello to Universal's Scarface remake

Antoine Fuqua has been coming on strong in recent years after seeing a bit of a downturn in his career following TRAINING DAY. But following the successes of OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, THE EQUALIZER and SOUTHPAW and with a promising remake of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN on deck for September, Fuqua has once again become a filmmaker that studios want to work with, and so it shouldn't come as...

The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Brian De Palma

Last week , we took a look at the career of actor Alec Baldwin who, somehow, has never gotten around to making a movie with this week’s subject... Brian De Palma Of all the directors I’ve featured in this column, I must admit that I have a particular - or perhaps peculiar - soft spot for Brian De Palma . Having attended TIFF since 2009, one of the...

Brian De Palma heads to China for Daredevil-esque action thriller Lights Out

Brian De Palma has earned his place in cinema with films like CARRIE, SCARFACE, THE UNTOUCHABLES, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, and others; but despite those classics, I've found it hard to get all that excited about his work over the past decade. Brian De Palma 's next film will see the director returning to the land of action thriller's with LIGHTS OUT, a film which sounds as...

Face-Off: Scarface vs. Goodfellas

BLACK MASS hits theaters next week, and with the help of a terrifying Johnny Depp and the direction of the talented Scott Cooper , the film has the potential to be a solid addition to the gangster film genre. Mob movies are roughly as old as celluloid itself, but only a handful shine through as truly great films. We've done THE GODFATHER vs. THE GODFATHER PART II (and I'm saving THE...

Exclusive: Movie CliffsNotes - Mission: Impossible

Truth be told, the first MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE confused the hell out of a lot of people when it first came out, but that didn't stop them from loving the shit out of it anyway. The plot goes from some crazy twists and turns, but eventually gets down to what we really want to see, which is Tom Cruise flying through the air with an exploding helicopter behind him. Really, that's...

The Scarface remake is fine with Al Pacino, "It's what we do" he says

While I hardly consider SCARFACE to be my favourite gangster film (that would be GOODFELLAS ) I can appreciate its place in film history and its impact on the genre. So when news broke yesterday of the proposed SCARFACE remake taking a step closer to reality, I was left wondering…why? One person who actually seems to be on board with the idea of a remake is Al Pacino...

Straight Outta Compton writer to draft the new remake of Scarface

SCARFACE is one of the best crime movies in Hollywood history. The question is whether you think it is Brian De Palma 's 1983 version starring Al Pacino as a Cuban immigrant turned crimelord or the 1932 Howard Hawks version starring Paul Muni as an Italian immigrant turned crimelord. In fact, you may have a third version to choose from since The Hollywood Reporter revealed a...

Brian De Palma and Al Pacino could finally reteam for thriller Retribution

It's crazy to think that Brian De Palma and Al Pacino have only worked together twice; perhaps it's because of the iconic roles from SCARFACE and CARLITO’S WAY that we often associate the duo together. Now after more than twenty years later they are looking to team up again for RETRIBUTION , a remake of the 2003 Belgian thriller THE MEMORY OF A KILLER. The...
