A revamp of the gritty 1983 drama, which starred Al Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana, has been in the planning stages since 2011, but now movie bosses believe they have found their director, TheWrap.com reported.
The storyline will reportedly stay true to both the 1983 remake and the 1932 original, which starred Paul Muni, but the new movie will be set in modern day Los Angeles and the character will be of Mexican origin.
