Scarface Reboot Hits a Snag as Director’s Exit Marks Another Setback in 12-Year Saga

The Scarface reboot, poised to be a contemporary take on the classic, suffers a blow with Luca Guadagnino‘s withdrawal as director. The latest in a string of difficulties, the decade-long effort to bring the Scarface reboot to fruition falters again with another key figure’s exit. First surfacing in 2011 at Universal, the Scarface reboot was set to revamp the tale of the notorious gangster immortalized by both Paul Muni in the 1932 classic and Al Pacino in the 1983 cult favorite.
