The new Scarface film loses Antoine Fuqua, but gains Diego Luna


Universal’s latest take on Scarface has lost its director, Antoine Fuqua. Looks like his work on The Equalizer sequel with Denzel Washington over at Sony has caused the scheduling problem.

Universal are still planning on filming to begin this spring, so the hunt is on for a new director.

Before I go any further, there are bound to be people out there moaning about remakes. Just remember that Brian De Palma and Al Pacino’s 1983 Scarface was itself a remake of the 1932 film (which was based on Armitage Trail’s 1929 novel of the same name) and that turned out okay, so lets ease back on the remake complaints. As with original movies, some remakes are good and some are bad. It is too early to tell which way this one will go.

However, it seems that Diego Luna (Rogue One, Blood Father, Y Tu Mamá También) may have the lead role and that works for me.

The film will be a Bluegrass Films and Global Produce production, and will be produced by Marc Shmuger, Scott Stuber, and Dylan Clark. Marty Bregman, producer of the 1983 “Scarface” film, will also produce.

“Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter wrote the most recent draft.
