Scarface reboot finds its self a writer

One of Al Pacino most recognised roles is that of Tony Montana, so its no wonder that some people are skeptic about Scarface getting a remake, but it seems it will be pressing ahead.

Some may question whether the 1983 version of the Hollywood blockbuster, was actually better than the original 1932 Scarface movie.  But we will leave the critics to argue that one out.

Although both versions of the movie have different back stories it now seems that a third back story is in the making.

Universal has teased a potential remake for years but now has a hot screenwriter on the project which could give it the boost it needs to become a reality. Jonathan Herman, writer on the NWA movie STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON as well as the remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s THE BIRDS, will work on the new SCARFACE. The film will still focus on an immigrant rising to power in the criminal underworld of Los Angeles. No other details have been released.

Scarface already has a director attached, in the form of Pablo Larrain (who helmed No), there’s no release date for the new Scarface yet, but it seems fairly clear that we should expect to see it within the next few years.

The only questions is can any one really out perform Al Pacino as a gangster?
