'Scarface' Remake in Development at Universal, Antoine Fuqua Attached
Antoine Fuqua, at the helm of the upcoming Western remake The Magnificent Seven, is in talks to direct another big-screen classic with Scarface. This would make it the third time that Universal have put the same film together, first in 1932 and second in 1983.
The film is a Bluegrass Films and Global Produce production. The film will be produced by Marc Shmuger, Scott Stuber, and Dylan Clark. Marty Bregman, producer of the 1983 Scarface film, will also produce.
The film will follow the same through-line, though set in contemporary Los Angeles. Fuqua's other credits include Training Day and The Equalizer, so the crime genre seems a good fit. The project is a high priority for Universal.
