Scarface is an American film that was released in 1932, and was directed by Howard Hawks, later in 1983 a remake was made, which was directed by Brian De Palma and starred by Al Pacino, Steven Bauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Robert Loggia, Harris Yulin, Paul Shenar and F. Murray Abraham, with a script written by acclaimed Oliver Stone.

This new version is planned to be shoot during the next spring, however it still does not have a director, since Antoine Fuqua, who was the first option, had to reject the work because he is doing the sequel of "The Equalizer".
