Universal Whelp, I had never seen a moderator during a post-movie Q&A be booed before, so that’s a new one. On Thursday night the Tribeca Film Festival hosted a retro screening at the Beacon Theater of Brian De Palma’s Scarface, the once-polarizing, now-classic 1983 film. Before we get to the fireworks, I will say it was really amazing to see this movie on the giant Beacon screen. Honestly, this is the first time I’ve even enjoyed Scarface.

Scarface Remake Loses Release Date; Equalizer Director Back In Talks Universal’s Scarface remake has unsurprisingly lost its Summer 2018 release date, but now has Antoine Fuqua back in talks to serve as its director. Fuqua was always passionate about this new planned iteration of the story about an American immigrant’s rise to power in the drug underworld, calling it “very timely” back in 2016.

David Ayer in Negotiations to Direct Scarface Remake Writer and director David Ayer knows how to make a certain type of gritty, street-level film, evident in his epic takes on war and crime in Fury and End of Watch.

Scarface Reboot: Diego Luna Cast as the Lead Ever since it was announced, one of the most unexpected (and some would argue, unnecessary) remakes in the works in Hollywood has been Universal’s planned new take on Scarface. This would, of course, be the third time that the story of Tony Montana was brought to life on the big screen, following Howard Hawkes’ 1932 film of the same name, and Brian de Palma’s 1983 remake starring Al Pacino. Now, while only true film buffs may be familiar with the 1932 original, many consider the 1983 film to be one of the most best gangsters movies of all time.

Wolf of Wall Street writer to tackle script for Antoine Fuqua's Scarface Terence Winter is no stranger to tackling the criminal element after his work on The Sopranos, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and Boardwalk Empire (which he created), so it should come as no surprise that the writer is now set to board Antoine Fuqua's remake of SCARFACE which will follow a Mexican immigrant fighting for his version of the American Dream in Los Angeles. Per Variety, Winter... Read More...

Antoine Fuqua's remake of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN hits theaters in just a few days but the director already has his eye on a remake of Brian De Palma's SCARFACE. The 1983 crime drama which starred an over the top Al Pacino was itself a remake of a 1932 film which went by the same name, but Antoine Fuqua recently told Fandango that the story of an immigrant fighting for his version...
