First of all, can we address the rumor that there is going to be a Scarface remake on the way! According to the Hollywood Reporter, Universal is looking to remake the movie, but it won’t be an exact replica of the 1983 cult classic version featuring Al Pacino.
The new Scarface is going to be similar in that it’s going to be a “crime tale,” but it will be set in 2012, and the characters will be different. It’s going to be a dark look at the American Dream, if that dream is to be a high-powered drug dealer.
Now, let’s get to the second part of this rumor – Rihanna. According to The Sun, the Bajan singe is obsessed with the character of Elvira Hancock, the hard-partying girlfriend of Al Pacino, originally played by Michelle Pfeiffer.
A source said: “Rihanna loves Scarface. Some of her music videos have been based on Michelle’s character, Elvira. “She knows all the words and even has her walk perfected.”
Are you excited about a new Scarface based in 2012? Is Rihanna a good fit as Elvira?
THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!!
They should just hand the role of Scarface to Chris Brown to seal the deal.
As a matter of fact let's just make it an all hip-hop cast and let Damon Dash produce this soon to be Epic remake.
I nominate Pusha T as manny and Rick Ross as Sosa.
