Things have been very quiet since Universal announced that they have another Scarface film in the works. A lot of people were complaining about the new version , but most of them forget that the Al Pacino version is also a remake (Scarface 1932).

II am all for a new vision of Scarface. The films are decades apart and altough they have the same concept, they are very much different. Each film is a reflection on the current times we live in. Rising to the top of the ranks in he crime-world in the 30’s, 80’s and now 2016 can’t even be compared, so I am all for it!. Even if this is a straight remake, I am still all for it.

And now we have an even bigger reason to get behind the movie – if the rumours are true then Tony Montana (not sure if it will still be the same name), will be played by Leo DiCaprio

The Hollywood Reporter  reported that the screenplay will be written by Jonathan Herman , writer of N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton.

The film will be set in L.A and will be directed by Chilean director Pablo Larrain.

More news to follow as it is announced. Thanks for reading
