A third movie in the 'Scarface' gangster series is being developed by Universal Pictures.
A new 'Scarface' movie is being developed.
Universal Pictures has been meeting with writers to prepare a script for the project, first released in 1932 before the 1983 version starring Al Pacino as gangster Tony Montana, a Cuban man who takes over the drugs trade in Miami.
The film will not be a remake or a sequel, but will maintain some of the elements made popular in the first two, included an immigrant seeking a twisted version of the American dream.

The sexy Latina is keen to revisit her character Gloria's native country with her TV family in a future episode - and Pacino is at the top of her wish list to play the role of her over-protective father.
She says, "In some other season we should go to Cartagena and meet Gloria's family in Colombia.
"I was telling them (producers) that they need to put Al Pacino like my father (sic), talking like Tony Montana... He should be Gloria's father."

Guests at Jay-Z's 40th birthday were flown into the Dominican Republic by private jet, before being treated with champagne, caviar, and a live performance of 'Empire State of Mind'.
Jay-Z refused to spare any expense for his 40th birthday celebrations.
The rapper and wife Beyonce Knowles flew their closest friends - including Oprah Winfrey, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, Kate Hudson and Ne-Yo - out to the Dominican Republic, paying for their private jet travel and luxury suites themselves.
The bash, held last Friday (04.12.09), had a 'Scarface' theme, with the venue decked out like the home of Tony Montana, and partygoers were treated to Dom Perignon champagne and caviar.

The singer, who divorced Whitney Houston in 2007 after 15 years of marriage, has fought a widely-publicised battle against drugs.
And he admits that at the height of his habit, he mirrored the Scarface anti-hero - who snorts mountains of cocaine on his office desk and has the motto "The World Is Yours".
Brown tells MTV.com, "I had a desk like Scarface's in my room, and I kept (cocaine) piled up on it. Every time I walked past my desk, I'd make a line of coke from one end to the other.

Marlon Brando's portrayal as DON VITO CORLEONE in screen classic The Godfather has been voted the UK's favourite screen gangster.
Brando's performance in the 1972 movie beat out competition from Al Pacino playing Tony Montana in Scarface.
Robert De Niro's turn as AL CAPONE in The Untouchables came third in the poll by Universal Pictures UK.
The Top Five Favourite Screen Gangsters are:
1. DON VITO CORLEONE (MARLON BRANDO) - THE GODFATHER (1972)
2. TONY MONTANA (AL PACINO) - SCARFACE (1983)
3. AL CAPONE (ROBERT DE NIRO) - THE UNTOUCHABLES (1987)
4. JULES WINNFIELD (Samuel L Jackson) - Pulp Fiction (1994)
5. NICKY SANTORO (Joe Pesci) - CASINO (1995).
For a time, Troy's script, called The Boondock Saints, was a pretty hot property, and so early on we see everyone from John Goodman to Mark Wahlberg holding court with Troy. He's got a preliminary budget of $15 million dollars, stars nipping at his heels, and all his buddies working alongside him (having given themselves the hubristic moniker "The Syndicate"), so it's not a shock that the guy gets a swelled head. But it's also not hard to see how Troy was able to piss off so many people in so short a time, because as impressed as everyone else is with his Horatio Alger-esque rise to fame, he is triply impressed with it. From behind a wall of cigarette smoke, Troy pontificates endlessly to anybody in the room with him about his sheer awesomeness and how everybody in the Hollywood establishment - being as he views himself as the hard-knock-life, blue-collar kid busting into their rarified world - is supposedly so floored by his abilities and successes.

Like watching a train wreck in slow motion while an ignorant, arrogant engineer shovels more coal onto the fire, "Overnight" is a cautionary tale about the fickle nature of showbiz in which the victim is his own worst enemy. A documentary following the rapidly self-destructing, stalled-rocket career of Troy Duffy, a Boston bartender/bouncer who on a fluke landed a sweetheart writing-directing deal with Miramax Films in 1997, the film would be painful to watch if its subject weren't such an insufferable lunkheaded egomaniac.
The kind of boastful, booze-pounding tough guy who might get in bar fights for fun, Duffy sold Miramax's Harvey Weinstein on his vigilante-with-a-heart script called "The Boondock Saints," and was paid $300,000 up front. Then he was given a $15 million budget for the movie, on which he would have casting approval and final cut -- two creative controls Miramax rarely grants even to established cinematic geniuses. But as his friends film every moment for what Duffy clearly thinks will be a rise-to-glory making-of about his film and the illustrious career to come, this flash-in-the-pan refuses all advice and begins alienating powerful Hollywood players, burning bridges left and right.
Within weeks, no one at Miramax will take his calls. Over the next three years, Duffy clings desperately to his inflated sense of self-importance. "We have a deep cesspool of creativity here," insists the badly-in-need-of-a-dictionary wannabe filmmaker, whose self-proclaimed talent and vision are quite simply never on display. As for Miramax, "they're gonna pay dearly for saying no to us," Duffy barks, habitually swearing up a storm.

The screen veteran was so tormented playing Cuban refugee Tony Montana in the big screen drama, he depended on the love of his life to restore his mood to a happy state at the end of his working day.
He says, "I'll tell you something. And this is a fact. When I was doing Scarface, I remember being in love at that time. One of the few times in my life.
