It’s being reported that Universal has brought in Terence Winter to work on the screenplay for Scarface. The movie is a long in-development new take on the immigrant rags to riches premise of both the 1932 and 1983 movies of the same name.
Winter is best known as a writer and executive producer on The Sopranos, and writer, executive producer, and creator of Boardwalk Empire, both with HBO. He was also nominated for an Academy Award writing the script for Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, and was a creator, writer, and executive producer on HBO’s short-livedVinyl, among other things.

Another remake we’ve been hearing about for a long time now is Scarface, a new take on the story told in both the 1932 movie of the same name starring Paul Muni and the 1983 movie of the same name starring Al Pacino.

Fuqua recently chatted briefly about the movie and where things stand. See what he had to say below.
