Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Scarface: Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, above) is attached to star in Scarface, a reimagining of the gangster classic. Director Antoine Fuqua has departed the project, however, due to scheduling issues. Fuqua had already invested considerable time in developing The Equalizer 2, so that will now take priority for him. As for Scarface, Universal has begun meeting with potential directors, aiming to start production in the spring. Based on a revised script by Terence Winter, the movie is set in Los Angeles and will revolve around a Mexican immigrant. [Variety]
