'Scarface' Remake Gets Director
Universal Pictures

The Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Luca Guadagnino has been tapped to sit behind the lens for the upcoming rework of the classic Tony Montana mobster tale.

AceShowbiz - Oscar nominee Luca Guadagnino has signed on for the "Scarface" remake.

The "Call Me by Your Name" director has picked up the reins of the Universal Pictures project, which previously had David Ayer and Antoine Fuqua attached at different times.

The film has been in the works since 2011, according to Deadline, but the tale of a gangster immigrant has hit the big screen twice before - Howard Hawks directed the 1932 version while Brian De Palma directed Al Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana in 1983.

The new movie, based on a script by Joel and Ethan Coen, will be set in Los Angeles.

Guadagnino is also hoping to develop a sequel to "Call Me By Your Name", entitled "Find Me", with the film's stars Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer.
