The phrase “left due to creative differences” gets thrown around a lot in the film industry. We recently saw how much of an impact it has when Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the untitled Han Solo film.
And it’s not the last time we will ever hear the phrase.

Case in point, Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who is walking away from the Scarface remake for that very reason. More on the story below.

Al Pacino in Scarface (1983)

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-lived Vinyl, among other things.

Scarface

We’ve been hearing about a remake of The Magnificent Seven for quite a while now. The movie is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer), and will finally be released this Friday.

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. Just last month we found out that Fuqua was in talks to take on that project as well.

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

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.

Scarface

In a remake/reboot/sequel/prequel–happy Hollywoodland, nothing should come as shock or surprise anymore. That said, it still doesn’t mean people will be thrilled to hear about one of these popular types of movie, especially when it involves a classic…or in this case, two of them.

It’s being reported that Universal Pictures is developing a new updated take on Scarface, which has had two previous versions of the story made: the 1932 classic starring Paul Muni and directed by Howard Hawks, and the 1983 hit starring Al Pacino and directed by Brian De Palma.
