Scarface Getting Another Remake, Only It’s Not A Remake

Scarface, the one starring Al Pacino from 1983 that most film fans generally know and talk about, isn’t actually the first movie to carry that title. Scarface traces its roots back to a 1932 film with the same name, with the common bond between the two being that they both center on the story of a ruthless, fearless gangster. Universal Pictures apparently sees value in telling such a tale for a third time, as that’s what’s being planned now.

The studio has met with writers in its search to find someone to develop a new take on the story, Deadline reports. The badass crime lord will once again be the central story point tying this movie to the others, but it shouldn’t be considered a sequel or even a remake. The studio hasn’t revealed any details about the main Scarface character, or even if an official decision has been made about his ethnic and social background. Considering that these facts helped shape the main characters in the two previous Scarface movies, you can probably expect it to fill a similar role in the new one.
