Scarface [1932]

The last time we heard about Universal Pictures’ planned remake of Scarface, Donnie Brasco writer Paul Attanasio was being brought in to rewrite the script first penned by Training Day scribe David Ayer.

Now comes word that Universal has quietly been bringing in numerous writers to keep making the script better and better, and that they’ve finally arrived at a draft that they’re “very high” on. But before they begin trying to find the perfect actor to lead the movie, a director must be found. And according to reports, the studio is currently in final negotiations with David Yates for the job.

Yates is of course best known for directing the last four chapters in the Harry Potter franchise, but has also helmed mini series like The Sins, The Way We Live, and State of Play, as well as various other shorts and TV movies.

Much like the 1983 Scarface directed by Brian De Palma and starring Al Pacino was a completely different take on the premise of the 1932 original Scarface directed by Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson and starring Paul Muni, this latest version will also take that same basic premise of a man living a life of crime, starting low and rising to a position of power, and present it in a new way.

What do you think about David Yates directing Scarface?
