Fans React To News Of 'Scarface' Reboot Without Al Pacino’s Tony Montana

News broke earlier this week that the much speculated about Scarface reboot is officially in the works!

According to Variety, Call Me by Your Name filmmaker Luca Guadagnino will direct the reboot for Universal Pictures.

This new version of Scarface will be a reimagining of the core immigrant story told in both the 1932 and 1983 films, and will be set in Los Angeles.

Needless to say, news of this reboot sparked a lot of discussion on social media.

In response to the news of Luca Guadagnino directing the reboot, one Twitter user wrote: "This is promising news, because maybe now the movie will actually be good."

However, not everyone on social media is feeling as optimistic about it.

One Twitter user made this interesting comparison: "The only Tony Montana we are accepting is Al Pacino, nobody asked for a Scarface remake, it would be like redrawing the Mona Lisa."

Reboots are always a touchy subject, especially when dealing with a beloved classic like *Scarface*.


"I really hope this [expletive] gets cancelled. If it doesn’t then they’ll just ruin a classic," said one fan.

"No reboot!!! I guarantee it won’t be good as the original!!!" wrote another.

However, some *Scarface* fans were quick to point out that their beloved 1983 film was actually a remake of the original 1932 film.

"Brian De Palma's Scarface is extremely overrated. I bet Luca could do better," suggested one user.

So hey, maybe this reboot will be as praised as the original reboot! You never know!

How are you feeling about the reboot news? Are you excited, or skeptical? I am a bit of both to be honest, but I think it will be good regardless!
