This Scarface version will be a reboot to both the 1923 and 1983 movies with new elements thrown into the mix.
Over the last few months, the director's chair has become something of a revolving door with Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton), Pablo Larrain (No) and Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) all involved in some capacity at one point or another.
And who better to capture that than director David Ayer, who grew up in East Los Angeles, served with the US military and was a street cop? Ayer has actually been linked to this movie for a while, as he was originally hired to write the script for the movie in 2011.
After tackling supervillains with Suicide Squad, David Ayer is heading back to the streets of Los Angeles.
Chelsea Manning documentary is in the works
Manning was acquitted of "aiding the enemy" by a military judge, but was convicted on several violations of the Espionage Act. Obama's decision to commute Manning's sentence set off harsh criticism from some Republicans and intelligence officials.
Ironically, the only thing giving anyone any hope for this project is the fact that Universal gave the script over to several other writers following Ayer's initial draft, and the version that will now purportedly be shot by Ayer was crafted by none other than the Coen brothers. Don't worry, there won't be any zombies in the Scarface reboot.
The film is set to bow on August 10, 2018. So you can expect some oddball humor to seep in.
The next film for Ayer will be his Netflix fantasy film Bright, starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace, which will drop on the streaming service in December.
The new "Scarface," will be produced by Dylan Clark for his Dylan Clark Productions and Scott Stuber. It is unknown if his commitment to Scarface will effect his work on DC Films' Suicide Squad spin-off Gotham City Sirens.
