Luca Guadagnino to Direct ‘Scarface’ Reboot

Originally Posted by Justin Kroll for Variety, May 14, 2020

“Call Me by Your Name” filmmaker Luca Guadagnino will direct a reboot of “Scarface” for Universal Pictures.

Joel Coen and Ethan Coen wrote the latest version of the script with earlier drafts by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, Jonathan Herman and Paul Attanasio.

“Scarface” will be produced by Dylan Clark for his Dylan Clark Productions. Scott Stuber will executive produce alongside Marco Marabito. SVP Brian Williams will also executive produce for Dylan Clark Productions.

The story has been adapted a number of times, most recently in the 1983 classic starring Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer with Brian DePalma directing. The new pic is a reimagining of the core immigrant story told in both the 1932 and 1983 films, and will be set in Los Angeles.

Senior VP of production Jay Polidoro and director of development Lexi Barta will oversee the project for Universal.

Guadagnino has spent the majority of his career directing prestige films, so “Scarface” would be the closest he’s come to taking on a tentpole. He most recently helmed a remake of “Suspiria” for Amazon Studios, which starred Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Chloe Moretz. Prior to that, he directed the Academy Award-winning drama “Call Me by Your Name,” which earned him an Oscar nomination.

He is currently on post-production on his HBO limited series “We Are Who We Are,” which stars Alice Braga and Kid Cudi, and is also developing a remake of “Lord of the Flies” for Warner Bros.

He is repped by WME and Goodman, Schenkman LLP.

a couple thoughts:
Hollywood is busted lol when is the last time they can up with an original idea? Both versions are considered classics, especially the 1983 version. Al Pacino did a fantastic job in one of his signature roles and the movie is a masterpiece in my opinion. Some movies just should not be touched and this is one of them. just start remaking everything while your at it (Citizen Kane, On the waterfront, The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, A Few Good Men, Titanic etc). I hope this doesn't happen because most of us will probably be disappointed, just saying.

Remakes, reboots, sequels, comic book adaptations, and stealing from foriegn films is what keeps Hollywood going. If they were making this movie another 10 years down the road, I would not have a problem with it.

Mann wants to do a prequel of HEAT and wants to use the same de-aging stuff as in The Irishman.
