David Ayer Steps Down from Scarface Project

Breaking: DAVID AYER Leaves SCARFACE Reboot Project

The hard quest for a director for Universal's Scarface continues as the studio has parted ways with David Ayer (Suicide Squad). With the movies that DC is planning now, we may have to wait a while before work starts on Suicide Squad 2. The current reboot has had a tough development process, as Ayer is not the first director to depart the project.

Ayer stepped in to potentially direct Scarface after Training Day filmmaker Antoine Fuqua dropped out.

Diego Luna is still on board the project, filling the shoes of Al Pacino who starred in the classic Brian De Palma version of the movie. The outlet states that Ayer's take on the Scarface story was simply too gruesome for Universal's liking. Conversely, Variety says it was just a matter of scheduling and the split was largely amicable.

Dylan Clark is producing through his Dylan Clark Production banner along with Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 original. As for Ayer, he remains quite busy with his new Will Smith-starring Netflix fantasy Bright set to hit our small screens in December.

According to The Hollwood Reporter, Warner Bros is planning on starting Suicide Squad 2 at some point in the middle of 2018. It's possible Ayer could be taking cues from the recent comic of the same name, which featured Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. Citing differences with the studio about the course of the movie (with Universal stating that Ayer's view was much darker than they envisioned), Ayer is no longer attached to the remake and Universal has to restart its search.
