Scarface: David Ayer In Talks To Direct Remake


Deadline is exclusively reporting that David Ayer is in early negotiations with Universal to direct the Scarface remake.

 

Back in August of last year, Universal brought Fuqua on board the project to direct the retelling of the classic gangster story which will focus on the immigrant rags-to-riches story but will present itself in contemporary Los Angles. At the end of January it was revealed that Fuqua departed the project due to schedule conflicts and had to choose between the Scarface remake or The Equalizer sequel.

 

In February media outlets reported that the Coen Brothers were brought onboard to polish the script and that Diego Luna was attached for the starring role. Dylan Clark will be serving as producer on the project alongside Scott Stuber and original 1983 producer Martin Bregman.

 

The Scarface remake is scheduled for cinematic release on the 10th August 2018.
