Say Hello to Scarface Remake Writer
It’s actually happening, people. So either jump on board or start saving your feces in jars so you have plenty to chuck at the screen when this remake hits theaters.
Now remember, this isn’t technically a remake of Brian De Palma’s 1983 film. It’s technically a remake of Howard Hawks 1932 film starring Paul Muni. But since the De Palma one is technically a remake of the original, isn’t this still just a remake of a remake? Who the hell knows. I’m goddamn confused. But what I do know is that producers Martin Bregma and Marc Shmuger have hired David Ayer to write the script, updating it to modern day.
Ayer is best known for writing Training Day and directing Street Kings. The new version will likely steer away from any specific remake elements outside of the basic storyline, though Ayer tells the site that he’s been studying both the 1932 and 1983 versions to prepare.
