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.

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...

Cast This: Tony Montana

The remake of SCARFACE is still lingering in the air as just this week we learned that Antoine Fuqua might be sitting in the director’s chair when cameras finally roll.

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...

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...

Could Harry Potter director David Yates be the man to remake Scarface?

First you get da money. Den, you get da remake. Universal has been gestating a remake of SCARFACE for a while now , developing it "quietly" so as not to enrage a fanbase that worships both the 1932 original or the 1983 remake, directed by Brian DePalma. So, just where are they in the process of developing a new iteration? According to Deadline, they're very close:...

Universal brings on a new scribe to polish David Ayer's script for modern-day Scarface redo

Here's something you might (or might not) have forgotten about the Brian De Palma/Al Pacino singular piece of pop-culture presence: it's a remake. The first version hit theaters in 1932, and there was a certain amount of dissension and annoyance and disbelief when the early eighties rolled around and somebody started talking about sending the story in a new direction.  Cue today,...
