New “Scarface” Movie In The Works… Tony Montana Is Coming Back To A Screen Near You

New "Scarface" Movie In The Works... Tony Montana Is Coming Back To A Screen Near You

Maybe we can thank rappers for this :)

Remember Al Pacino recently thanked rappers for keeping the spirit of Tony Montana alive all these years. Well… there you go!

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures is developing a new version of Scarface; yes, that’s right; like we really need a third one.

But wait… there’s this:

The film is not intended to be a remake or a sequel. It will take the common elements of the first two films: an outsider, an immigrant, barges his way into the criminal establishment in pursuit of a twisted version of the American dream, becoming a kingpin through a campaign of ruthlessness and violent ambition. The studio is keeping the specifics of where the new Tony character comes from under wraps at the moment, but ethnicity and geography were important in the first two versions.

Oooh… I know, I know. This new Tony should come from Africa! You know, they should just give this to Djo Tunda Wa Munga to write and direct, and call it Viva Riva 2. The kid at the end of the flick with the booty, leaves the DRC for NYC and starts some shit.
