A reboot of classic gangster movie “Scarface” scripted by the Coen brothers and set in Los Angeles is moving forward with a new director at Universal Pictures, a source familiar with the deal told AFP Thursday.
The film will be directed by Oscar nominee Luca Guadagnino (“Call Me By Your Name”) and will be the third big-screen take on the blood-soaked immigrant underworld story.
The original 1932 movie directed by Howard Hawks — itself based on a novel partly inspired by Al Capone’s life — depicted Italian mafia in Chicago.
