With his new book out today, Scarface stopped by the Breakfast Club. He opened up about alot of personal issues like his health problems that almost ended his life and personal struggles. He spoke on the origin of the Gheto Boys, his relationship with 2pac and much more. Diary of a Madman: The Geto Boys, Life, Death, and the Roots of Southern Rap is out now!
Scarface is getting a remake. Universal Studios are tapping Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton) to rewrite the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Marty Bregman, who produced the 1983 version, is on board along with Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark for Bluegrass Films and Marc Shmuger for his Global Produce company. Pablo Larrain will serve as the director. The remake will have a similar story except that this time, it’ll center around a Mexican immigrant. Here’s what Al Pacino had to say: “Oh, it’s fine,” “It’s part of what we do. We remake things.”
