'Scarface' Reboot Movie Has David Ayer Attached as Director!
May 19 2017 by Francis Osborne
The 1983 version of Scarface earned $65.9 million worldwide. Suddenly someone remembered David Ayer exists, probably hungry to show off his machismo insanity after years of dealing with DC cartoon characters and Orc Cops. Ayer steps in for Antoine Fuqua, who couldn't fit it into his growing schedule.
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?
After tackling supervillains with Suicide Squad, David Ayer is heading back to the streets of Los Angeles. He wrote the screenplay for Training Day. Diego Luna, who starred in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", had been attached to play the role made famous by Al Pacino in Brian De Palma's classic, but it's unknown at this time whether he will still topline, now that the project is courting a new director.
Nadal loses 6-4, 6-3 to Thiem in Italian Open quarterfinals
Kontaveit beat 16th-seeded Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-1, 6-1 to set up a quarterfinal against Madrid Open champion Simona Halep. But Nadal sealed titles in Barcelona and Madrid with comfortable wins in the finals of both those tournaments.
Universal and Ayer are just entering early talks, which could break down before anything is signed on the dotted line.
The latest Scarface is set to star Diego Luna with a script by the Coen Brothers. Don't worry, there won't be any zombies in the Scarface reboot.
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. Dylan Clark will produce via his Dylan Clark Productions, along with Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 Scarface film. Plus, it presumably keeps him away from Gotham City Sirens, a film I'd much rather see someone else - anyone else - step in to direct. The film is now scheduled to debut in August 2018.
