Pacino Brings Back SCARFACE
Al Pacino has signed to voice the legendary character in a video game adaptation of the film.
Vivendi Universal Games has lined up an all-star voice cast that includes Al Pacino for the upcoming adaptation of Scarface, Scarface: The World Is Yours. Original Scarface cast members Steven Bauer and Robert Loggia (who played Manny Ray and Frank Lopez, respectively), comedians Jay Mohr and Cheech Marin and actors James Woods, Miguel Sandoval, Robert Davi, Michael Rappaport and Michael York are also on board.
Set for release this fall, the game will allow players to be the one and only Tony Montana, forced to carve out his drug empire for the second time. The game will be shown publicly for the first time at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on May 18.
The Scarface video game immerses players in a "what if Tony survives" storyline that begins with the explosive shootout at the end of the film. Gamers will travel through the steamy, often violent streets of Miami, the eerie islands of the various Caribbean locales and will interact with a world full of seedy and dangerous characters to procure information, negotiate business deals, smuggle contraband and avoid rivals and DEA on a mission to rebuild their fallen empire. Scarface is currently in development by veteran video game developer Radical Games for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and PC.
