HOLLYWOOD – Luca Guadagnino’s new film Scarface gets its first picture.
News of Luca Guadagnino’s new version of Scarface hit the internets and excited much comment. Taken from a script by the Coen Brothers, Guadagnino’s film looks set to take on the iconic Brian De Palma version which starred Al Pacino.
We spoke with Luca yesterday and asked him what it was going to be like:
It’s going to be fantastico. Ecco the first picture from the film.
Can we publish this?
Certo. Of course. The new film will go back in time. The first one was too Eighties. I love it but it was you know trashy. In this version we’re going to go back to the classic RKO crime pictures. Black and white, as you can see, at the same kind of production design.
Wow! And who is this in the picture?
Oscar Isaac. He looks different, no?
Yes, he’s unrecog…
…nizable I know. Why you always say things I know Studio Exec? We made him up so that he had a scar and tried to make him look a little older too. I think he looks fantastic. The music is going to be by Hans Zimmer and is going to be just tubas. No other instruments. Just tubas all the time. Parp, parp, parp!
