Los Angeles: Universal is reportedly moving forward with its remake of "Scarface".
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Straight Outta Compton" writer Jonathan Herman has been hired to pen the movie.
The updated film will offer a fresh take on the immigrant story and will apparently be set in Los Angeles.
"Scarface" was first released in 1932 and remade in 1983 with Al Pacino, who played a Cuban refugee who goes from nothing to a powerful drug dealer in Miami.
A third version of the film has been a long time coming and gone through several drafts by Paul Attanasio and David Ayer.
