"Training Day" writer David Ayer has signed on to pen the latest remake of Scarface says Deadline.
The new film will combine elements of the 1932 original and Brian de Palma's 1983 remake but setting it all within the modern crime world.
Ayer says that he has no plans to do a straight up remake of the 1983 film. Instead he'll use the universal elements from both films - "a specificity of place, there was unapologetic violence, and a main character who socially scared the s**t out of people, but who had his own moral cod . Each was faithful to the underworld of its time."
