The classic American tale of a Gangster's rise to power undergoes its second remake, the first since Brian De Palma directed Al Pacino as Tony Montana.
Jonathan Herman will rewrite the Scarface remake script previously worked on by David Ayer and Paul Attanasio.
Paul Attanasio is writing the script, which follows an immigrant's rise through the Los Angeles criminal underworld.
Universal Pictures is reportedly very pleased with the most recent draft of the screenplay, which has been developed by multiple writers.
David Ayer was originally brought aboard to provide a screenplay for this remake of the gangster classic starring Al Pacino.
The Training Day scribe has been brought on to draft a new version of the gangster classic for Universal Pictures.
