The 1983 American crime thriller directed by Brian De Palma, was a reboot of the 1932 film which tells the tale of the Cuban immigrant Tony Montana (Al Pacino) who arrives in Miami in the 1980s with nothing, but ends up becoming a wealthy mob boss. Besides Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer, the cast featured Stephen Spielberg, Robert Loggia, F. Murray Abraham, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio.
Guadagnino spent much of his time making influential films, and 'Scarface' will be the best he's ever come to taking on a tent. He recently released a reboot of 'Suspiria' for Amazon Studios, featuring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Chloe Moretz. Previously, he shot the Academy Award-winning film 'Call Me By Your Name,' which landed him an Oscar nomination.
