David Yates for 'Scarface' Reboot? Sure.

scarface-300 Universal Pics.

If your first reaction to talk of a "Scarface" reboot is "Dammit. Why can't Hollywood leave this one well enough alone?" then first of all welcome to the club, and secondly you haven't been paying attention. Nothing — and we do mean nothing — is sacred in modern day Tinseltown, friends. It's a business of reduxes and spin-offs and remastering and endless sequeling galore, and even something like "Scarface," a masterpiece of criminal theater and a go-to showcase of Al Pacino's Al Pacino-ness, is on the table.*

So, this thing is happening, and it looks like Univeral Pics. may want David Yates of "Harry Potter" acclaim to handle it.   Get More »

9 Movies Re-Imagined as 8-Bit Video Games

Scarface Old Red Jalopy

Is there some 8-bit wizard out there who could make our arcade fantasies come true?

Alas, we've got a pocket full of quarters but only a handful of "What If?" game cartridges. We'd love to walk in the pixelated footsteps of Donnie Darko, get stuck in a loop on "Groundhog Day" and rule the blocky beaches of Miami with Tony Montana. And we will. In our 1-octet dreams. Get More »

The 9 Best Irish Mafia Movies

The Departed
Warner Bros.

When most people hear the word "Mafia," it conjures up images of "The Godfather," "Goodfellas" and "The Sopranos." But Italian-Americans are hardly the only ethnic group to establish large organized crime rings.

Irish mobsters regularly challenged the Cosa Nostra for territory throughout American history -- and like their Italian counterparts, their conquests have made for some damn fine movies, dating all the way back to the James Cagney vehicles of the 1930s. Get More »

Universal Decides It's Time For Another 'Scarface'

Al Pacino in Scarface

The only thing surprising about this news is that it took so long to happen.

Universal Pictures has officially deemed it time to once again tell the story of a crime lord and his little friend as it preps a "Scarface" for the 21st century, according to Deadline.

The epic tale of corruption and violence has been told on the big screen twice before in the Howard Hughes-produced 1932 film starring Paul Muni and in Brian De Palma's 1983 cult classic starring Al Pacino as the endlessly quotable Tony Montana.  Get More »

Say Hello to 'Scarface' on Blu-ray for the First Time


It's hard to fathom that "Scarface" -- a gangster movie that has become an iconic inspiration to rappers everywhere -- was maligned during its theatrical release in 1983 for its glorification of violence and unapologetic profanity, the very things that make it the ultimate cult classic.

Directed by Brian De Palma with a script by Oliver Stone, this remake of the 1932 film of the same name is really a twisted look at the American Dream and how out-of-control greed and corruption pervert that dream into one man's waking nightmare. Get More »
