Scarface reboot taps Call Me By Your Name director
The filmmaker, who also helmed the remake of Suspiria with Dakota Johnson, is now looking to take on Universal's Scarface reboot, EW has learned. And that is just peachy!
The Coen Brothers, Joel and Ethan, wrote the latest draft of the script, which is a reimagining of the core immigrant story told in both the 1932 and 1983 films. This one will be set in Los Angeles. Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, Jonathan Herman, and Paul Attanasio wrote earlier drafts.
Guadagnino was recently thought to be reuniting Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer for a Call Me By Your Name film sequel, based on an interview he gave to Italian newspaper La Repubblica. However, it appears that was more wishful thinking and not official confirmation of anything.
In addition to Scarface, Guadagnino is currently working on We Are Who We Are, an HBO drama with Chloe Sevigny, Kid Cudi, and Alice Braga. He's also attached to direct a Lord of the Flies movie for Warner Bros.
Variety was the first to report the news.
