"Scarface Remake"The Universal Pictures are preparing to develop the third version of the previous two versions of the gangster based movie ‘Scarface’.

The first version of the classic ‘Scarface’ was released in the year 1932, with Ann Dvorak, Boris Karloff and George Raft in the lead role. The second version of the movie with the same title has been made in the year 1983 with Al Pacino playing the gangster leader Tony Montana, Steven Baur, Michele Pfeiffer and Mary Elizabeth Mastrontonio in the lead characters. However, the 1932 film featured the backdrop of Italian taking over Chicago, while the 1983 movie featured a Cuban doing the cocaine trade in Miami.

As per the reports, the forthcoming third version of ‘Scarface’ will be produced by Marc Shmuger and Martin Bregman, who has produced the version of Al Pacino. It has also been reported that, the third version of the gangster movie has not been planned as a remake or sequel. However, the common elements of the first two movies will be involved in the upcoming movie. Universal Studios are also keeping the details of new Tony character under wraps.

The 1983 version was considered as a Howard Hughes produced classic, with a script provided by Ben Hecht, while Howard Hawks directed the movie along with Richard Rosson. The movie has also been an icon, in its own way with the influence of hip-hop culture. The signature line of Tony Montana, ‘Say Hello to my Little Friend’ still remains the biggest ever selling voice ringtone for cell phones. Also, Universal has sold 10 million DVDs, through out the world.
