    We always knew the "Scarface" remake was coming, with Universal developing the project for a few years now. But we weren't expecting Pablo Larrain to be the one to bring this new vision of gangsterism to the multiplex.

    Retrospective: The Films of Brian De Palma

    Few film directors are as polarizing as Brian De Palma, whose new film, the already argued-over "Passion," opens this week (read our review from Venice here). Hailed by some as an American visionary and a modern master of suspense, capable of gorgeously realized visual feats, De Palma is derided by ...

    David Yates Embraces The Power & Money Of Directing The 'Scarface' Remake

    It would appear that "Harry Potter" franchise director David Yates has a gangster itch he really wants to scratch. You might recall that the helmer has long been attached to the Al Capone movie "Cicero" over at Warner Bros., that has Tom Hardy to set to star. Earlier this year, development on that p...

    Watch: 36-Minute Discussion Of 'Scarface' With Al Pacino, Brian De Palma & Oliver Stone Plus 1983 Behind-The-Scenes Special

    Ludicrous machismo and the American Dream were never the same once Brian De Palma's “Scarface” landed in 1983, carving shocking setpieces and Tony Montana catchphrases into the surface of pop culture like a reckless chainsaw. But as with any landmark film like De Palma's, it's a worth a look backwar...

    The New 'Scarface' Will Reportedly Be Mexican & The Film Set Among Drug Cartels

    Oh right, the "Scarface" remake/reboot/whatever. This has been percolating in a slow cooker: first announced in the fall of 2011 with David Ayer hired to write the first draft, and nearly a year later, the project got some fresh blood as "Donnie Brasco" scribe Paul Attanasio came...

    'Donnie Brasco' Writer Paul Attanasio Latest To Tackle Universal's 'Scarface' Update

    Despite already striking gold with two films -- the 1932 Howard Hawks-helmed original and the equally iconic Brian De Palma 1983 remake -- Universal decided last year to attempt another update of the classic “Scarface” story. While David Ayer was the first name attached to pen the s...

    First You Get The Money, Then You Get David Ayer & Then You Get A 'Scarface' Remake

    First announced a couple of months ago, many hoped Universal's attempt to reboot their "Scarface" franchise would fall to the wayside, but it seems they are quite serious about not only making it happen, but getting it ready sooner than we thought. Following in the footsteps of Oliver ...

    Universal Wants You To Say Hello To Their Little Friend, A New 'Scarface' Movie

    You can pretty much feel the change in thinking over at Universal with this bit of news. After spending the last year or so cancelling a plethora of potentially risky projects (“At the Mountains of Madness,” “Memphis,” “In the Heights,” “The Dark Tower,” “Clue,” “Ouija,” “Wicked Lovely”) and currently smarting from some less than stellar box office returns for films like “Your Highness,” “The Change-Up” and “Cowboys & Aliens” this year, it seems the studio is sticking with brands that they know. And one of their biggest catalog titles is "Scarface," and since there are only so many times you can reissue that thing on DVD and BluRay (the most ...
