Hollywood may be going overboard with the remakes lately, but this one is shaping up to look pretty promising!!
Universal has reported that the remake to the 1983 hit Scarface is still underway. Scribe Jonathan Herman, who also wrote the highly anticipated gagster-rap biopic Straight Outta Compton, is set to pen the script!
But this remake isn't exactly retelling the same story of the Cuban refugee Tony Montana taking over the drug scene in Miami. The new script will be set in Los Angeles and follow an immigrant's rise in the criminal underworld.
Interesting! We wonder how this remake will stack up to the original. Especially since the 1983 classic featured Al Pacino reciting one of the most iconic lines in movie history: "Say hello to my little friend!"
No pressure, guys!
