SCARFACE May Get Exactly The Director It Deserves

Over the last few months, the director's chair has become something of a revolving door with Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton), Pablo Larrain (No) and Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) all involved in some capacity at one point or another.

Ayer is best known for directing Suicide Squad, as well as Fury, End of Watch, and the upcoming Netflix movie Bright. The movie will be set in Los Angeles and will incorporate many modern elements into the mix. Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 film, serves in the same capacity in the telling of this generation's Scarface, which the studio first brought to the screen in 1932.

And who better to capture that than director David Ayer, who grew up in East Los Angeles, served with the USA military and was a street cop? Diego Luna (Rogue One, Blood Father) has been attached to play the title gangster, though it is unknown if he will stay on now that Ayer is attached.

Another reason he's a solid fit: Ayer already has a history with this project, having written a draft of the screenplay.

Scarface is scheduled to hit theaters in August 2018.

The Scarface reboot will be a Bluegrass Films and Global Produce production.

Ayer recently wrote and directed "Suicide Squad", which starred Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne and and Viola Davis.

The latest Scarface is set to star Diego Luna with a script by the Coen Brothers. DC Films has not issued a start date for Gotham City Sirens, so it's unclear if that will shoot before Scarface, or if that movie is being put on the back burner for the time being.
