So it looks like that Scarface remake (remember, the Brian De Palma/Al Pacino flick itself was a remake of a 1932 version), is going ahead with the helmer that was originally attached.

Antoine Fuqua, who initially bowed out because of a scheduling conflict with his Equalizer sequel, is back in discussions with Universal about the gig.

Suicide Squad's David Ayer had become attached but also bounced after a reported scheduling conflict.

Bizarrely, Joel and Ethan Coen penned a draft of the script, while Diego Luna was in line to star. It's not clear if he will be the lead going forward.

Fuqua knows his action; he's behind Oscar winner Training Day, as well as the Hong Kong-inspired shoot 'em up, The Replacement Killers.
