Universal Rebooting 'Scarface'

Sep 21, 2011 | 4:17pm EDT

7833211.jpgSay hello, again, to my little friend. Deadline has revealed that Universal is planning a modern update of Scarface. The new film will not be remake or sequel to Al Pacino's gloriously overblown 1983 gangster classic, itself a remake of Howard Hawks' eponymous 1932 film. Instead it will borrow only the basic premise of those films -- an immigrant outsider rises to the top of a criminal syndicate, only to be consumed by his own ambition and exaggerated accent -- and the invaluable brand recognition the title Scarface bestows. No word yet on whether Tony Montana will be revived as well. Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 version, will produce the update alongside Marc Shmuger.
