A bit of background
After actor Al Pacino watched the 1932 version of Scarface, he decided to remake the film. It will be a modern-day (filmed in 1982-83) rags-to-riches crime drama brimming with excess and violence.
The director attached to this project was Sidney Lumet. But after some creative differences, Brina De Palma was brought on board. Writer Oliver Stone was given the task to re-write the original script.
Scarface was not received very well in its initial opening. It was given an X rating in North America for excessive violence and drug themes. De Palma made edits to the film and received an R rating.
Today, Scarface is a much-appraised crime drama and is considered a cult classic.
What’s the story?
The film’s story centers around Cuban immigrant, Tony Montana, who arrives in Miami as a dishwasher in a restaurant.
Soon, Montana would work his way into the drug trafficking business with small jobs. As his knowledge of the business grows, he sets his sights on building an empire and rises to become a powerful drug lord.
