“Scarface” Remake Gets A New Writer

Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer (“Miss Bala,” “Contralepo”) has come onboard to pen a rewrite of the “Scarface” remake at Universal Pictures.

The writer takes over from earlier drafts penned by David Ayer, Jonathan Herman and Joel Coen & Ethan Coen.

This third screen incarnation of the story following Howard Hawks’ 1932 and Brian dePalma’s 1983 versions, will be set in Los Angeles and is described as a complete re-imagining.

Antoine Fuqua has returned to direct the project which was previously targeting an August 18th release but is now currently undated. Dylan Clark will produce.
