Universal to Make New Version of SCARFACE
"A third version of Scarface is on its way. Universal is currently developing a new version of the gangster film. The first iteration was the Howard Hughes-produced 1932 classic that was based on the life of Al Capone. Brian De Palma put his own spin on the story in 1983"
"The report is quick to point out that Universal does not intend for the new film to be a remake or sequel to either previous films, but hopes to infuse the basic elements of the other Scarfaces into a new version (read: they want name recognition)."
