PACINO SAID DE PALMA'S IDEA WAS TO MAKE IT BIG
Recaps of last night's Scarface cast reunion have flooded the web today, so below is a list of links to a few of them. Also, Livestream has been replaying the hour-long cast discussion from last night, so if you missed it, you can go two posts below this one and click the play icon to watch it. I've noticed in some of these recaps, quotes are sometimes attributed to the wrong person, and some are taken out of context of the longer story, so I will try to get my own transcription of some of these a bit later. For now, suffice it to say that Al Pacino kept talking about the melding of Brian De Palma and Oliver Stone, two forces he had expected to clash, but somehow blended very well (although producer Martin Bregman is said (by Bauer, I believe) to have banned Stone from the set to avoid such arguments). Also, Livestream was showing clips from what appears to be a new documentary for the Blu-Ray that comes out September 6th. The clips showed several people talking about the imact of Scarface, including Scarface Nation author Ken Tucker (the book received a shout-out from Pacino last night), L.A. Banks, author of the prequel novel, Scarface: The Beginning, that came out in 2006, and Jillian Reynolds, among others.
