Say hello to my little friend ... again. Sort of. Universal Pictures is preparing to make (but not remake) a third Scarface, which it says will not be a rehashing of or sequel to either the 1932 or 1983 films, but a new version, reports Deadline. It'll share the same premise (outsider busts his way into the criminal underworld in a bid to achieve the, ahem, American dream; violence is involved).
No word on ethnicity or geography (Italian/Chicago, Cuban/Miami played big in the first two versions, Deadline reminds us). Former Universal head Marc Shmuger will produce, along with Martin Bregman, who produced the Al Pacino version.
|How can you one-up this guy?|
I could give a fuck about the 1932 movie, but I swear to god if they sully the good name of Tony Montana I will go fucking postal. I mean are no movies sacred anymore? Why don't they just destroy the Godfather too? Or remake fucking Goodfellas. Jesus when will the madness end?
