New 'Scarface' movie set in Mexico among drug cartels

By
Universal Pictures' new Scarface remake will be based around Mexican drug cartels.

The third version of the classic crime film will recast Al Pacino's Tony Montana as a Mexican immigrant, reports Latino Review.

The original 1932 film was centred around Italian mobsters. In Brian De Palma and Oliver Stone's 1983 remake, Pacino's character was a Cuban immigrant.

The new film has been said to be based on elements from the previous outings, but will apparently be neither a sequel nor a remake.

End of Watch writer David Ayer was hired to pen the first draft of the script, with Donnie Brasco's Paul Attanasio later brought in to work on a new screenplay.

A lead has yet to be cast for the upcoming Scarface film.
