Scarface: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scarface is being reinvented at USA Network, which is developing an updated version that restages the gangster classic with a black cast in inner-city Los Angeles during the crack epidemic of the 1980s.

Charles "Chic" Eglee is attached to write and executive produce the four-hour miniseries, which he indicated could be in production as early as the fall in anticipation of a 2005 debut.

A director and cast have yet to be named.
