Picked up Stone's "Scarface"-related replies. Not sure if that's everything as FB can be confusing. Enjoy:
Oliver Stone @ Steve Petrakis - I am for the legalization of drugs. The 41 yr war on drugs has backfired. Am for decriminalization, taxation, and where necessary, medical supervision.
Oliver Stone Max Ramírez - Scarface was developed for Al by his producer. I came onboard after there'd been several failed scripts. Brian was brought on to direct the script. I stayed through the entire shooting to make revisions as we went.
Oliver Stone @derrick collins - Why no sequel? Because he died in the end. Did you forget? I think the producers are still trying to remake some kind of sequel to capitalize. Son of Tony? But 1980s has passed.
Oliver Stone @eric brodsky - Q:Tony Montana vs the gangsters in Savages. A: Different eras, different styles. Colombian vs. Mexican vs. Iraq War veteran? Brutality breeds brutality no matter matter.
Oliver Stone @ Brian Dinelle - Scarface I traveled in the Miami/Miami Beach/Fort Lauderdale underworlds, with and without police. Also went to Caribbean, where it got spooky and also travelled the trail in Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador.
Oliver Stone The character of the mastermind was based on true character Sanchez in Bolivia.
Oliver Stone @Salmen Khoraizat - no Al doesn't do real coke. Synthetic. It's called acting :)
Oliver Stone @Brandan Berghoff - Scarface was based on the original 1930s Paul Muni film, set in Prohibition Chicago. The original director Sidney Lumet's idea was to update the film to Miami 1980s that's when i embarked on this journey down to Florida
Oliver Stone @Kevin Graham - re: difference btwn Scarface and cartels now? A: Same principle of competition. Capitalize maximum volume at lowest price. Squeeze or eliminate the competition. Kill who you have to kill. It was the Mexicans who stole the cocaine trade out from under the Colombians in the 80s. Now the Colombians work for the Mexicans producing the original coke.
