Universal remaking Scarface again?

Posted on 22 September 2011 by TH3 No08

If there’s ever been a reason to rise up in the streets and burn Hollywood to the ground this is surely one of them. Universal Pictures is so happy with the sales of the recent Scarface Blu-Ray release that they have decided to remake it again for the third time. Yes, a third time. According to Deadline the new version would be an amalgamation of the previous two films focusing on both the immigrants journey to the US as well as the subsequent rise to power through the drug trade. While the Scarface of the 80′s was no blockbuster it has over the years become a cult hit that has influenced both filmmakers and musicians from all walks of life and has sold well over 10 million DVDs. That translates to a lot of money.

Hollywood’s insistence to continually remake films over and over again and not take chance never ceases to amaze me. There are no shortage of great ideas out there, just a real lack of guts on Hollywood’s part in refusing to take a chance on them.
