LUCA GUADAGNINO IS LATEST DIRECTOR FOR 'SCARFACE'
ALSO, HE COUNTS DE PALMA'S 'THE FURY' AS ONE OF THE GREATEST FILMS OF ALL TIME
http://www.angelfire.com/de/palma/scarface.jpgLuca Guadagnino, director of the recent high-profile remake of Dario Argento's Suspiria, and who included Brian De Palma's The Fury on his top ten for the 2012 Sight & Sound greatest films of all time poll, "is now set to direct Universal Pictures’ reimagination of Scarface," according to Deadline's Anthony D'Alessandro. "The new movie will be set in Los Angeles," D'Alessandro adds. "The pic’s shooting script will be off of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen’s version, who’ve been with the project for at least three years, with earlier drafts by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, Jonathan Herman and Paul Attanasio."

In fact, when Antoine Fuqua came back a second time as director of this "reimagination" in 2018, Dunnet-Alcocer was brought in to rewrite the Coen Brothers' 2017 draft. It sounds like that draft has since left the building along with Fuqua. Right around the first time Fuqua had left the project, in January of 2017 (prior to the Coen Brothers' involvement), Diego Luna was attached to play the lead. However, Diego confirmed to Collider's Jeff Sneider at Sundance this past January that he is no longer attached to Scarface.

The remake of SUSPIRIA by Luca blew me away.

If anyone is going to remake SCARFACE I hope it's 

this guy. A BIGGER SPLASH by Luca is also a 

terrific film.

I did like A Bigger Splash a lot-- still haven't seen his Suspiria.

Films such as the remake of SUSPIRIA is prestige Horror.

I could only go throught half of the new Suspiria. I saw it as incomprehensible feminsit oriented mess, a Mother! wannabe made by a filmmaker doesnt have the talent/style to be visualistiaccly weird.

A personal taste it might be. As if only ONE of their remakes got better than the original, let a lone two masterpieces originals!

Doesnt even worth talking about it, this attempted remake.

Couldn't agree more, Mustafa. This is going to be a disaster if it ever gets greenlighted. What an affront to Howard Hawks and Brian De Palma, two of the greatest directors of all time. This will ruffle some feathers I'm sure, but the Coens are the most overrated filmmakers in the history of cinema. As someone who is from Minneapolis, I can credibly say they embody the most obnoxious aspects of the twin cities. Their penchant for caricature over character is extremely off putting and they are somehow baroque without being visually interesting. Their budgets keep getting bigger and bigger but their ideas remain the same. And as far as Luca, based on Suspiria and Call Me By Your Name I couldn't think of a less qualified filmmaker.

 "Suspiria" is more inclined to an art house interpretation then the stylistic visuals and camp of Dario Argento's masterpiece. By the slow and gradual end of the remake the film had a strong hold on me. Not for everyone's taste but I did like the film.

if anyone is in doubt of Luca's filmmaking prowess I'd recommend I Am Love, which is as indebted to Hitchcock as De Palma's Obsession was. He can be a great visual stylist and his early films like The Protagonists were as experimentally curious as De Palma's early work too, so I'm not worried.

Agreed. "I Am Love" is a masterpiece. Yet I wonder if this director has the visual vocabulary for complex action scenes (I thought "Susperia" was a muddied mess). We'll see...
