David Ayer In Early Talks To Direct 'Scarface' Reboot

David Ayer In Early Talks To Direct 'Scarface' Reboot

This is the experience of David Ayer, whom Deadline reports is in talks to direct the latest iteration of Scarface for Universal.

The film has been slated for a 2018 release and originally had Antoine Fuqua in the mix to direct. Fuqua, however, left the conversation due to scheduling conflicts. This new version of the gangster thriller has shifted locations from Miami to Los Angeles, and Ayer knows the dirty, gritty streets of modern day L.A.as well as any other current filmmaker.

The next film for Ayer will be his Netflix fantasy film Bright, starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace, which will drop on the streaming service in December.

South Korea recalls Hyundai cars, asks probe on cover-up
The recall was brought about by the actions of a whistle-blowing engineer who worked for Hyundai, Kim Gwang-ho. Hyundai and Kia initially rejected the recall, saying that the defects did not affect safety.

Earlier this year, Ayer admitted that Jared Leto's Joker should have been the film's main villain in Suicide Squad after one moviegoer was so frustrated by the lack of Leto in the film that he even threatened to sue Warner Bros for false advertising. Plus, it presumably keeps him away from Gotham City Sirens, a film I'd much rather see someone else - anyone else - step in to direct. Marc Shmuger, Scott Stuber, Dylan Clark will produce the film with Marty Bregman, producer of the 1983 Scarface from director Brian De Palma returning to produce as well.

Ok, Suicide Squad was pretty woeful but Ayer seems like he could be a good fit for the material.

The first theatrical Scarface made it to theaters in 1932 from director Howard Hawks and told the story of an Irish immigrant's rise to power as a gangster in 1920s Chicago.
