Scarface remake coming soon to theaters.

According to reports, Universal Pictures announced on Friday they will release a remake of Al Pacino’s hit movie Scarface on August 10th. The studio has hired Joel and Ethan Coen to work on the movie’s script, which was previously developed by Boardwalk Empire’s Terence Winter.

The movie will center around the original Al Pacino movie, but instead of a Cuban immigrant in Miami, Scarface will be a Mexican immigrant in Los Angeles.

It was believed director Antoine Fuqua was going to direct the movie, but reportedly backed out of the production.

Details surrounding the cast or the filming location have not been released.
