Scarface Remake: Here’s What the Movie Needs to Live Up to the Original

But, in 1983, the New Jersey-born filmmaker showed his worth as a more mainstream, world-building talent when he brought the stylish and gritty crime drama Scarface to the big screen.

​ A Scarface remake has been teased for nearly 15 years, but with Pedro Pascal’s recent rumored attachment, it may actually become a reality.
