Director Luca Guadagnino is all set to add a crime drama to his filmography with the Scarface reboot. Yes! A reboot of the popular film is in the works and the Call Me By Your Name director is all set to helm it with Coen Brothers' script. Reports suggest that Guadagnino’s version will be reimagining the original immigrant narrative established in both those films, and this time will be set in Los Angeles. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen have been working on a draft for the new film. While there have been several versions of Scarface, the most celebrated one remains to be the Al Pacino starrer.

The filmmaker also has Call Me By Your Name sequel in his pipeline which is based on Andre Aciman's novel, Find Me. Scarface reboot is to be produced by Dylan Clark via Dylan Clark Productions, with Scott Stuber serving as executive producer alongside Marco Marabit. Considering the film is currently in its scripting stage, there's no knowledge about the casting yet though it will certainly be interesting to see who bags Pacino's role.
Fans of Scarface weren't very thrilled when the remake news first hit the stands but hearing about Guadagnino coming on board, Twitterati seem to be more positive about the project now and are now discussing on who could play the title role. Check out some reactions here.

Coen Brothers + Luca Could End Up a Good Reboot!
I was 100% against a (2nd) remake of #Scarface until this moment, when I realized it'll be a Coen Brothers script.
I stand corrected. As you were, gents. https://t.co/Q4HlMhpejI
