Luca Guadagnino No Longer Developing Scarface Reboot

Scarface Reboot

Director Luca Guadagnino, who was previously attached to the project, confirmed that he is no longer working on Scarface reboot.

The Scarface reboot has faced another setback after being in development for over a decade. The upcoming film is a modern reinterpretation of the legendary fictional crime boss’s story, first introduced in the 1929 novel Scarface.

The novel has seen two previous screen adaptations; a 1932 movie featuring Paul Muni as Tony Camonte and a 1983 film starring Al Pacino as Tony Montana. The reboot aims to incorporate elements from both prior versions rather than adhering strictly to one or the other.

As reported by The Hindu, Call Me By Your Name and Challengers director Guadagnino, addressed his role in the Scarface movie reboot during the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival. Despite previous announcements linking him to the project, he has now officially stated, “I am no longer involved in Scarface.”

He did not provide any insight into the current status of the project or whether it has been handed over to a different creative team.

The Scarface reboot has faced numerous challenges in its journey to the big screen, with development starting at Universal in 2011. Over the years, there have been many different writers and directors associated with the project in various configurations. Initially, the team was set to include Martin Bregman, the original Scarface producer, David Ayer, the director of Suicide Squad, as the screenwriter, and discussions with David Yates, known for his work in the Harry Potter franchise, for the directorial role.
