Looks like the updated version of Scarface has hit another roadblock as it was announced that David Ayer has left the film.

Ayer was picked to replace original director Antoine Fuqua, who had to leave the film in order to prepare for The Equalizer II. However, according to sources, the split is caused by all too familiar problem: creative differences.

Ayer’s script, in which the film would be set in Los Angeles’ drug cartel, was considered too dark by the studio. Very strange considering Brian De Palma‘s 1983 take had a bit of darkness to it…remember that chainsaw scene?

Regardless, a new search is on for a director as Diego Luna is still attached to star as Tony Montana. More as this develops…
