Luca Guadagnino Is Directing a 'Scarface' Reboot Written by the Coen Brothers
Published May 14, 2020Hollywood has been trying to piece together its Scarface remake for years, and now they've finally found the most highbrow way to say hello to their little friend. The new iteration of the flick will be directed by Call Me By Your Name helmer Luca Guadagnino.
The latest version of the film, which had been connected to The Magnificent Seven director Antoine Fuqua back in 2016, will be based on a script that has been punched up by none other than Joel and Ethan Cohen. Earlier drafts had been written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, Jonathan Herman and Paul Attanasio.
Obviously, everything's up in the air right now, so it's unclear when this thing will go into production or when it will come out. But the new film is said to be a reimagining of the story previously told in 1932 and more famously in the 1983 Al Pacino/Michelle Pfeiffer films.
This is hardly Guadagnino's first stab at a remake — the director previously ruined Dario Argento's classic horror flick Suspiria back in 2018.
Stay tuned for more information on the Scarface reboot as it becomes available.
