Universal Making New <i>Scarface</i> Film

Universal has announced plans to release a new film under the Scarface moniker.

In what would be the third movie with the Scarface name, after the 1932 Howard Hawks version and the 1983 Al Pacino film, Universal plans on not remaking the previous versions, but tellingl a new story. The film will most likely deal with many of the same issues as the ‘83 version, such as the rise of a crime boss and usage of drugs and violence.

While not much about the new film is known yet, like where the character will be from or just how much will be borrowed from prior versions, the film is certain to be one that will face much scrutiny, being that both previous Scarface films are considered gangster classics.
