David Ayer Scarface

David Ayer is in early talks to direct Universal’s “Scarface” reimagining.

Variety first reported that Antoine Fuqua left the director’s chair. Sources reveal that the studio is now very close to landing a new helmer. Diego Luna, who starred in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” had been attached to play the role made famous by Al Pacino in Brian De Palma’s classic, but it’s unknown at this time whether he will still topline, now that the project is courting a new director.

The Coen brothers recently polished the script. Terence Winter had penned an earlier version.

The new “Scarface,” a Bluegrass Films and Global Produce production, will be produced by Marc Shmuger, Scott Stuber, and Dylan Clark. The film is set to bow on August 10, 201

Exec VP of production Jon Mone and VP of production Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for Universal.

Ayer most recently directed Netflix’s fantasy cop thriller “Bright” starring Will Smith. He is repped by CAA.
