Apparently, Universal will be making re-make of Scarface (1983), Scarface is one of those films that everyone knows about all you have to say is ‘Say Hello to my little friend’ and everyone knows what your talking about!
Personally i cant imagine a remake being as good as the original (although the 1983 Scarface is a re-make from the 1932 original), the fact that its such a cult classic is one of the main reasons and i really can’t imagine someone doing Tony’s character justice like Al Pacino did! Another thing, for me anyway, is the look of the film! I really enjoy the fact that it was filmed in the 80’s and everything fits in with that era down to the filming techniques to the lighting, the music and even the acting.
It will apparently have a modern twist to it and this time it will be based in Los Angeles instead of Miami. The storyline will still be based around the same things: Immigration and drugs! I am intrigued as to how the producers will make this film stand out as much as Scarface in comparison to every other modern day drug/crime related film!
Here is what i imagine the cast to look like:
Gael Garcia Bernal as Tony Montana
Margot Robbie as Elvira Hancock
Taylor Lautner as Manny Ribera
Dania Ramirez as Gina Montana
