Scarface Movie Remake Will Be Shocking & R-Rated, Says Director

Recommended Posts


Luca Guadagnino, who is helming the latest remake of Scarface, is determined to make a hard R-rated movie that will shock audiences. The 1982 version, directed by Brian DePalma, starred Al Pacino as Tony Montana, a Cuban immigrant who quickly becomes the most powerful criminal in Miami. Scarface also starred Michelle Pfeiffer in a star-making turn as Montana's girlfriend turned reluctant trophy wife. Written by Oliver Stone, it was a blood-soaked, violent and shocking remake of the 1932 Howard Hawks film, and caused controversy upon its release.

Despite this, the movie was a box office success and has since become a pop-culture staple. It's been parodied in countless movies, music videos, and even video games like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, which features a climactic battle that copies the movie's iconic final scene almost exactly. A remake, written by Joel and Ethan Coen, is currently in development, to be helmed by Luca Guadagnino. The Italian director is best known for his adaptation of Call Me By Your Name and the 2018 remake of classic horror Suspiria.

Speaking to Collider, Guadagnino has revealed that he is intent on making the remake as shocking as DePalma's 1982 version was upon release. Calling the character of Tony Montana an "archetype," Guadagnino says that evil characters like him are a "symptom" of the immigrant's need to achieve the American Dream. The director adds that his film will be a hard R-rated movie and that the script, which he calls great, is one that will lead to a film that is "shocking."

That would be a huge mistake to make. No one will be as good as Al Pacino
