Scarface Synopsis

An explosive reimagining of one of the most iconic sagas in film history, Universal Pictures' Scarface shoots from a script polished by four-time Academy Award(r) winners Joel Coen & Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, Fargo).

A Bluegrass Films and Global Produce production, the drama will be produced by Marc Shmuger (Lucy), Scott Stuber (Ted) and Dylan Clark (Planet of the Apes series). 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.
