Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Diego Luna will reportedly star in the forthcoming Scarface remake.
Sources said director Antoine Fuqua will no longer direct the film due to a scheduling conflict with The Equalizer sequel. Universal Pictures is reportedly meeting with other directors to avoid production delays.
Fuqua was said to have "very much wanted" to direct the movie, but was unable to reconcile his schedule. Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire) wrote the most recent screenplay, with Marc Shmuger and Scarface producer Marty Bregman as producers.
Scarface (1983), itself based on the 1932 movie of the same name, earned more than $65 million at the box office. The remake will re-imagine the core story of both the 1983 and 1932 versions.
"It's part of what we do. We remake things," Pacino said of the project to The Hollywood Reporter in 2015. "I may remake a movie I saw recently. I can't say what it is. It's about 50 years old."
Luna is known for playing Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and also appeared in Y tu mama tambien and Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. He will also star in Flatliners with Ellen Page and Nina Dobrev.
