Director David Yates, who helmed the final four Harry Potter films, is reportedly in final negotiations to direct Universal's Scarface reboot. ..

This will be a straight reboot and not a remake of either the 1932 original film or the 1982 cult classic starring Al Pacino.

Previous reports claimed this film's Tony Montana-type lead would be Mexican and that the story, penned by Donnie Brasco's Paul Attanasio, would revolve around the Mexican drug cartels.

IGN: Harry Potter Director David Yates Up for Scarface Reboot

So..... Drug cartels deaths are pretty awful to hear about. I remember when it was a big thing a couple years ago, and the Mexican Army had to regulate everything for a while.

Anywho. Yea, people are gonna be pretty mad. I think a good story could come out of this, if it didn't have the Scarface name to it. Its whatevs. Apparently they're rebooting 'Scarface' and also 'The Mummy."

O shit! it's going down, but I don't know whether I should be excited or not.

If it happens I hope it turnsout good.

Shouldn't they just make a GTA movie?

#4 Posted by mrfluke (5093 posts) -

the mummy reboot i think could be good.

but scarface?, how do you even do scarface without Al Pacino, who do you even cast?

They probably should have waited 50 years like they did the first time. Most of us would be getting up there and Al Pacino would either not be available or be much too old to do anything in this movie. And the new generation can have their own Scarface.

I still think the 1982 Scarface is a genuinely bad movie, but if Universal thinks they can make some good money off of the licence, they can have their try.

Universal has been mining their back catalog for remakes for awhile now so why not this one?

#10 Posted by bigjeffrey (4794 posts) -

You a hasa? . I think Scarface is a MASTERPIECE (Thats Right), but i don't see a reason to get mad about a remake. They should cast Ryan Reynolds in a mustache.

Pacino's Scarface was already just a reimanging of a 1932 movie about an Al Capone stand-in.

I can't wait for the reboot of the Scarface reboot of the Scarface remake

I'm glad The Warriors remake never happened. Replacing all the goofy gangs with bloods and crips was a stupid idea.

#13 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

Scarface was terrible. Seriously that movie is only remembered cause Rappers thought it was the shit.

They should call it Scarface: Vice City for good measure

#18 Posted by CornBREDX (4815 posts) -

It won't be as good and I don't know why they even bother.

I mean I'm not hugely opposed to this news or anything, but it's hard to see how they could build on the original movie in any serious way or even replace Al Pacino, he's so iconic in the original. It's also just kind of dreary to see Hollywood continually fall further down the "Reboot and sequelise things instead of coming up with new ideas" rabbit hole.

The real question that should be asked: how influential will it be on the world of Hip Hop?

#22 Posted by FourWude (2261 posts) -

@funkasaurasrex: We'll all know whether the reboot made it when millionaire rappers have a $6.99 Special Edition of the DVD on their mantelpiece, giving it pride of place on their 15 minutes of MTV Cribs.

#24 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6287 posts) -

Scarface is far from the untouchable, timeless, classic rappers make it out to be. If they take a "Savages" kind of angle on it they could have a really solid remake on their hands. Or if they went the Traffic route and showed just how futile this entire drug war is. Then again, the '80's Scarface did the exact same thing. Fuck lot of good that did.

Well that's interesting....

Am I the only person here who didn't like the Al Pacino version? I tried watching it a bunch of times but lost interest a quarter of the way through.

I like it. What I never understood was the weird, envious love for the lifestyle Scarface leads harbored by some groups. Sure, there's money, women, and power, but he also self-destructs and ends up losing everything because of his greed and hubris. He's hardly a role-model.

Yeah I never understood that too. I guess some people just can't read between the lines *shrug*

I was going to say that I'll bet that Scarface will be playedd by a rapper.

#31 Posted by Danteveli (1160 posts) -

I don't understand why use the title for the movie when it means it will be compared to the other two. Still I don't really care much about the reboot of anything since it will be crappy cash in.

#32 Posted by Castiel (2528 posts) -

I have to agree with you on this one. If you want to see a good Brian De Palma/Al Pacino gangsterflick watch Carlito's Way. It's way better than Scarface.

#33 Posted by DaddyCabinet (178 posts) -

Man I thought I was the only person on earth that didnt like scarface. How can a movie that has a man killed with a chainsaw be so boring?

Too much Scarface hate in this thread, fuck this shit.

Anyway blah blah blah remakes suck they should stop making them. Oh but Mummy with Channing Tatum, how about that? That'd be okay.

#36 Posted by Juzie (167 posts) -

Scarface is not a good movie. A remake will either be good or just as bad.

My guess is either good, or bad, or average. I can't pinpoint which one though, but im 99% sure it's one of those 3.

#37 Posted by Fearbeard (824 posts) -

Can't wait till this thread ends to tally up how many people complain about them remaking it without realizing the 1982 version is a remake

The 80s Scarface is one of my favorite movies of all time so I really can't complain about a Scarface reboot..

Interested to see what they do.

There must have been a period between the injury and the scar when everyone just called him Scabface.

Uhhh...what?

You do realize that this is still going on right? This year alone more than 7000 people died in Mexico. Just sayin...

#48 Posted by Missacre (566 posts) -

I'm honestly not surprised that Scarface is getting a reboot. What ISN'T getting a reboot these days? Ugh, 2013 has been such a letdown for movies, and I don't see it getting any better in the near future, what with all the reboots, remakes, sequels, and prequels that are happening.

#49 Posted by ISuperGamerI (1880 posts) -

Yeah I heard about this "remake" and I'm not sure what to think of it. Scarface is a classic and one of my favourite movies (mostly cause Al Pacino plays the main role).
