Scarface Remake: Antoine Fuqua in Talks to Direct
Deadline that Antoine Fuqua – the director of such films as Training Day, Shooter and The Equalizer – is now circling the new Scarface. No details as to the current state of the new project are otherwise known, save that it intends to be a “re-imagining” of the central premise of the previous Scarface movies: a rags-to-riches story of a poor immigrant who starts off as a low-level criminal in the U.S. but, through ruthless ambition, becomes a powerful underworld figure thereafter.
The new version of Scarface will take place primarily in modern-day Los Angeles, as opposed to the Miami setting of the 1983 film or New York in the 1932 version. The most recent draft of the screenplay was written by Johnathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton), though Fuqua’s Training Day screenwriter (and Suicide Squad writer/director) David Ayer reportedly wrote an earlier draft of the script.
Le tengo fé al director pero basta de remakes por el amor de dio.
