New "Scarface" Movie in the Works

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Universal Pictures is developing a new version of Scarface, the title first released in 1932 and then turned into the iconic 1983 film that starred Al Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana. The film is not intended to be a remake or a sequel. It will take the common elements of the first two films: An outsider, an immigrant, barges his way into the criminal establishment in pursuit of a twisted version of the American dream, becoming a kingpin through a campaign of ruthlessness and violent ambition. The studio is keeping the specifics of where the new Tony character comes from under wraps at the moment, but ethnicity and geography were important in the first two versions. The move is sure to draw howls from the legion of fans of the Al Pacino-starring film, which featured the Oscar winner as a Cuban immigrant who grows to own the Miami drug market. Though Hollywood has always thrived on recycling its own products -- "Scarface," after all, is a remake -- the industry has ramped up the reboot cycle in the past few years. So what do you think? Is a new "Scarface" movie a good idea, or should Hollywood just leave it alone? Leave a comment below and let us know.
