Rihanna and Scarface

Hip-Hop Rumors: Is There A "Scarface" Remake On The Way Featuring Rihanna?!

First of all, can we address the rumor that there is going to be a Scarface remake on the way!  According to the Hollywood Reporter, Universal is looking to remake the movie, but it won’t be an exact replica of the 1983 cult classic version featuring Al Pacino.

The new Scarface is going to be similar in that it’s going to be a “crime tale,” but it will be set in 2012, and the characters will be different. It’s going to be a dark look at the American Dream, if that dream is to be a high-powered drug dealer.

Now, let’s get to the second part of this rumor – Rihanna. According to The Sun, the Bajan singe is obsessed with the character of  Elvira Hancock, the hard-partying girlfriend of Al Pacino, originally played by Michelle Pfeiffer.

A source said: “Rihanna loves Scarface. Some of her music videos have been based on Michelle’s character, Elvira. “She knows all the words and even has her walk perfected.”

Are you excited about a new Scarface based in 2012? Is Rihanna a good fit as Elvira?

Sidenote – Did you know that the Scarface featuring Al Pacino was actually a remake? According to Screen Rant, the first Scarface was released in 1932 and was set in Chicago. The movie featured bootlegging, Italians, and Irish mobsters, which is totally different from the 1983 version, which was set in Latin-loving Miami where cocaine was the vice of choice.

    Yes, most people knew it was a remake. No, no one wants to see another classic movie get destroyed by Hollywood figures who are so creatively deprived that they’d rather re-release older films in HD/3D or remake them in general, opposed to creating new revolutionary concepts.

      Drugs and gangsta movies are fashionable has nothing to do with the movie. Most kids would go to work if they could find a job that provides them a living wage and lets them get a nice car and their own place. Right now most people can’t make it on what they have.

      • MDL88

        True … But for many young kids growing up in certain environments .. The 9 to 5 slow money route is not the goal …Listen to 99.9 % of radio airplay hip hop ..and you hear rappers talking about being coke kingpins ,doing dirt …Even artists who never done dirt in their whole lives portray this myth because it sells which equals profit for shareholders in the record label/prison biz …Just my 2 cents !

  • nooooooooo please leave this classic alone. Noo do not make the movie. I read the headline and said wtf. They are always f*cking up shit. They did it with carlito’s way rise to power. I didn’t feel it. Shottas tv show is wack.

  • I am sorry no hate to rihanna she can’t act. Get another good black hollywood actress. Stick to your whinny bullsh*t what you call singing.

  • daRealMigos ▬|ι═══════ﺤ

    so they want to remake a remake of a remake?…everything we grew to love is getting tainted…smh

  • I’m sick of drug movies and remakes…..just like the music industry the film industry is failing because they’re too concerned with making money than quality movies

  • TheOnlyCoop

    I’m not sure I want to see a remake. But I could see Rihanna playing
    Elvira.

    • You must don’t know what good acting is apparently you really don’t know the difference. Just because she “looks” good doesn’t mean she can act and she has zero acting skills my man. Battleship did you see it?

      • TheOnlyCoop

        Slim not much acting needed. All she has to do is act like a fly chick that’s strung-out and drunk all the time. That shouldn’t be much acting needed.

      • jamaicanbornanbread

        dat bitch cant act…. did u see battleship?

  • kyrarottie

    NO! NO! PLEASE! DO NOT DESTROY ONE OF PACINO’S CLASSICS!

  • jamaicanbornanbread

    yea syd we are well aware that the 83′ version was not the original…..there is nothing new under the sun(damn a nigga depart for a while and u seem to have stepped ur game up)…but as for another remake i yell:NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….the difference between the 1932 version and the pacino joint was the pacino joint was the foundation or birth of not just a culture…but a traditional way of living by all….it gave birth to a few rappers name and topics..gangsta rap etc. etc….the 1932 version did not connect to the masses like the pacino joint…..

  • bad isea.Don’t do it pleeeease dooon’t do it

  • ulostatlife

    This broad was one of the reasons battleship sunk and she wants to play a pivotal role based on one the most iconic movies ever made.When will the bullsh*t stop?

  • MiiUziWeighsATon

    RiRi noooo…Zoe Saldana yes, yes, Yes, YEs, YES, YEEEESSSSSSS….love that pretty mafukka an she can act a lil something…re-do the script…call it something else…get some fresh talent that can really bring the story to life…we need a fresh, new gangstavflick that didn’t cost 25thou to make….please no hip hop sound track…however, let RZA score the film with some dope shyt like he did with KillBill…Please no Morris Chestnut, Shemar Moore or none of these corny dudes…maybe Wood Harris or the Marlowe nigga from The Wire…he got real scars…lmao…I’m just saying

  • Sexy_Sabe

    Hell Naw! They need to take two steps bk away from my movie, tht is a classic an they need to leave it alone! …Smh

    If SHE plays the wifey in it, I can just bet who’s American dream it’ll be about….complete with agendas and subliminals like most of Hollywood. Yeah, i know some of you thinking *sigh* but watch what happens if this gets made. More software for the biological computers to install.
