Hoo boy, this is some news today! Variety is reporting that our bellissimo director boyfriend Luca Guadagnino has signed on to direct a new remake of Scarface. Word is that the latest script was written by the Coen Brothers (!!!) and it'll be set once again in Los Angeles. Can I just say...

We know that Luca knows how to do remakes right -- well anyone of the (correct) opinion that his re-do of Dario Argento's Suspiria is a stone-cold masterpiece does, anyway -- so color me fuckin' intrigued. Save Pfeiffer (obviously, perfection) and some of the over-the-top gruesomeness (oh and Steven Bauer's tight pants, I guess) I've never been too infatuated with Brian De Palma's 1983 film -- it has its moments but Pacino's just way too fucking much. And yes I am fully aware that De Palma wanted Way Too Fucking Much, but it's way too fucking much.
Of course all this makes me wonder about is all the other stuff Luca's attached himself to -- there's the remake of Lord of the Flies for one, and well yeah yes indeed for another there's the Call Me By Your Name sequel, which he keeps insisting he's going to do, despite all of You People (not me!) whinging about it. What will actually be next for Luca once things are happening in the world again? Besides his HBO series We Are Who We Are I mean, which he's actively in post-production on right now for a probable end-of-year drop. Speaking of, hello Tom Mercier...
Don't forget his upcoming movie based on Bob Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks".
Even though the original is perfect I’d still love to see him do Auntie Mame with Tilda.
On the sequel, I am with you. I want many. The primary reason is that last chapter, Ghost Spots. It is so heartbreaking, beautiful, nostalgic and it completes the story for me, gives it a much deeper dimension that it would be a crime not to see it on the big screen. Two, three movies down line like the before trilogy where we have lived/ grown with them, yup that should happen.
This is way too weird, I was trying to think of this french film I had wanted to see, something 'language' related in the title, and remembered you had posted about it. I get on here, 2nd post down, that guy, Tom Mercier, looks vaguely familiar. Google him, 'Synonyms'! And...scene.
I'm so upset we are who we are is not coming out this summer, it looks like such a summer show.
