The saga of the Scarface remake continues. Common Photos has formally eliminated the long-developed venture from the discharge calendar, and Deadline stories that The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua could also be circling again to the movie after dropping off early final 12 months. Scarface was scheduled to reach in theaters on August 10, 2018, and is now undated.

Per the report, Fuqua is again in early conversations with Common to direct a brand new spin on the enduring crime story and “things are looking good as the negotiations get underway.” Additional, it appears Scarface could free its lead actor because of the scheduling shakeup. Rogue One star Diego Luna was circling the lead function, however is now unsure because of potential scheduling conflicts that will include the the altered manufacturing timeline.

The movie has had fairly a rocky path to manufacturing thus far. Harry Potter director David Yates was in talks to direct throughout the early days of the venture, adopted by Fuqua and Pablo Larrain (Jackie). Most lately, Suicide Squad director David Ayer was introduced on board to direct and pen a brand new script for the remake, however he too dropped off the venture final Spring with stories suggesting his model was “too dark” for Common’s liking. A earlier draft of the script was written by Joel and Ethan Coen. The newest draft comes from the Coen brothers, Ayer, and Jonathan Herman.

The rags-to-riches crimes story has been transplanted from Miami to modern-day Los Angeles, and Fuqua could be able to tackle the venture after he completes post-production on The Equalizer 2. The basic gangster story has been dropped at movie twice earlier than, first within the 1932 movie from Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson, and once more within the 1983 model directed by Brian De Palma, written by Oliver Stone, and starring Al Pacino.

No new launch date has been set for Common’s remake right now.
