Dreamcasting the 'Scarface' Remake Starring Pedro Pascal As Tony Montana

Instead of the usual dour-faced reaction to the news of yet another remake (of a remake), I’ve decided to give this one a positive spin. Let’s face it, upping any of Pacino’s major performances would be no easy task, and De Palma’s violent, drug-fueled, rags-to-riches-to-destruction is going to be a bitch to even attempt. But, thinking about an actor who could handle the lead role of Tony Montana —basically the key to the whole thing — does bring one particular someone to mind.

Okay, so it’s not a machine gun, but you get the drift. And the similarities are crazy; for instance, I was completely traumatized by Scarface’s shower scene — to the point where I can never watch that part of the film again (ff!), just as I’ve been utterly traumatized by Oberyn’s fight scene, and can never watch that again.

Next thing I knew, a certain (former) Pascal co-star popped into my head, and I realized the entire film could easily be cast with Game of Thrones actors. And we’re off…


In the Michelle Pfeiffer role of Elvira Hancock, Natalie Dormer:

Forget the physical resemblance; she’d knock that coked-out (if that’s the drug of choice), femme fatale thing out of the park.

Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton will write the “new and originalScarface script (the novel and 1932 film were loosely based on Al Capone’s rise and fall; Oliver Stone changed things up for the 1983 movie); Pablo LarraĆ­n (No, Tony Manero) will direct, and the setting will move from Miami to Los Angeles. I still think they should consider my dream cast.
