“Universal Pictures has brought on Pablo Larraín (No) to direct their Scarface reboot.David Yates was in talks to direct back in August, but he has now moved on to makeTarzan for Warner Bros.

This reboot will be a reimagining of the core immigrant story told in both the 1932 original Scarface and the 1983 Scarface remake. This story will follow an immigrant’s rise through the Los Angeles criminal underworld, with the main character said to be of Mexican descent. The plot is said to be a mythic origin story that shows how Tony’s physical and emotional wounds helped define him as a man.” – movieweb

We love that the story is evolving with modern day immigrant tales.
