All You ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Fans Listen Up ‘Coz Luca Guadagnino Is Set To Direct The ‘Scarface’ Reboot
If you were moved by the beautiful nuisances of blended American and European cinema in Call Me By Your Name, then boy to we have a treat for you.
According to Deadline, the film’s Oscar-nominated director Luca Guadagnino has been confirmed to direct Universal Picture’s reboot of Scarface, and tbh we hope this American crime drama will ooze a bit of Elio-Oliver Euro sweat (even though it's a notably darker story...).
The 1983 iteration of the film starred Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer in Miami, where “a determined Cuban immigrant takes over a drug cartel and succumbs to greed,” as IMDb puts it. But the original version dates back to 1932 and was set in Chicago, so it’s a story that’s definitely stood the test of time.
It’s believed Luca’s version of events will take place in Los Angeles and is based off the script re-written by the Coen Brothers (Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men).
Don’t worry though team, Luca will still be going ahead as the director at the helm of the Call Me By Your Name sequel, Find Me, which will see the return of actors Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer.
We are loving this wave of international cinema in the mainstream and can’t wait to see Luca’s spin on this classic.
