David Ayer In Talks To Direct Scarface Reboot

The director of Suicide Squad is in early talks to direct the new Scarface film

Ayer steps in for Antoine Fuqua, who couldn't fit it into his growing schedule. He knows the landscape of this tale like the back of his hand, and has already explored that idea in movies like Hard Times and Street Kings before moving into the big blockbuster realm of Suicide Squad, where many believe his vision as an auteur was hampered by the suits at Warner Bros.

The film will play as a new take on the gangster story, which is based on Armitage Trail's 1930 novel of the same name.

A few weeks ago, we brought you the news that Rogue One star Diego Luna was going to pick up Tony Montana's chainsaw and mountain of cocaine, but it appears that the remake of a remake of a remake has found its director. He's built a career on exploring them in movies like Training Day, The Fast and the Furious, and Dark Blue (all of which he wrote or co-wrote), along with Harsh Times and End of Watch (both of which he wrote and directed).

In 2014, the Scarface remake was slated to be helmed by Chilean director Pablo Larraín, who announced it would follow a Mexican drug dealer.

Universal and Ayer are just entering early talks, which could break down before anything is signed on the dotted line. Don't worry, there won't be any zombies in the Scarface reboot.

The Coen brothers recently polished the script. Terence Winter had penned an earlier version.

The studio is eyeing to release the reimagining of the classic gangster pic on August 10, 2018. Dylan Clark will produce via his Dylan Clark Productions, along with Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 Scarface film. Anything is possible with DC.
