Scarface Is Being Remade, Will Be Set In LA

Scarface drugs

Scarface, one of the manliest movies ever made, is getting a remake that will be set in modern day Los Angeles.

The 80’s classic, which itself was a remake of an earlier movie, told the story of gangster Tony Montana (Al Pacino), a Cuban refugee who arrives in 1980s Miami with nothing but works his way up to become a powerful drug kingpin. It is often cited as one of the top 10 gangster films and cult classics of all time.

To ensure that the new Scarface has the grit and edge viewers expect, it will be partly helmed by Straight-Outta-Compton director Jonathan Herman, with critically-acclaimed Pablo Larrain from Chile serving as the main director.

The film will have an immigrant as the protagonist and follows a similar rise-to-power storyline as its predecessors. A release date has yet to be announced.
