Luca Guadagnino to Direct 'Scarface' Reboot

We seem to be in the day and age where remakes of past popular movies and TV shows are being made left and right. We’re seeing reboots, prequels, and sequels happening, and it’s been fun (in some cases).

For some of the most nostalgic movies and series, we see a new generation fall in love with the stories of the past. Things like Fuller House and Spider-Man have done well, and now with a Scarface remake, the cast will try and do the same thing. 

Fillmaker director Luca Guadagnino is now set to helm a retelling of “Scarface” for Universal Pictures.

The mythic crime story of Scarface has been told many a time in cinema, from the 1932 Howard Hawks original starring Paul Muni, to Brian De Palma’s lurid Miami-set take, from 1983, with Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Guadagnino’s version will reportedly be a reimagining of the original immigrant narrative established in both those films, and this time will be set in Los Angeles.
