    New 'Scarface' In Development At Universal


    Say hello to his little friend. Again.
    Deadline.com is reporting that Universal Pictures is working on a new film in the "Scarface" canon, looking to use the basic elements of the first two films -- produced in 1932 and 1983, respectively -- to create a new rags to riches, immigrant mobster story.
    The move is sure to draw howls from the legion of fans of the Al Pacino-starring film, which featured the the Oscar winner as a Cuban immigrant who grows to own the Miami drug market. Though Hollywood has always thrived on recycling its own products -- "Scarface," after all, is a remake -- the industry has ramped up the reboot cycle in the past few years.
    This year alone has featured box office duds "Conan the Barbarian" and "Fright Night 3D," as well as a new "Final Destination" and "Scream" film. This fall, a remake of 80s classics, "Footloose," and "21 Jump Street" hit theaters, while a re-telling of the famed British miniseries "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" will also make its way to screens. Just recently, a remake of surfer film "Point Break" was announced, to much dissatisfaction amongst fans. Martin Scorcese just announced a remake of "The Gambler," while Johnny Depp is currently working on his own remake of the TV show, "Dark Shadows."
    Looks like every college freshman dorm room in America will have a new poster option.

    We're remaking remakes.

    ^ Im not her but I think there was only one, the one with Al Pacino. No one really counts the game which added another ending to the Al Pacino story which is a shame because it wasnt that bad.

    Now about this remake, no. Stop. Let Scarface be.

    I believe there was one made in 1932 about bootlegging in Chicago.
