De Palma Making Capone
A prequel to The Untouchables.
 
Brian De Palma has just signed a deal with Paramount Pictures to direct The Untouchables: Capone Rising, a prequel to his 1987 film The Untouchables, according to today's Variety.

De Palma, whose other credits include Scarface and Carlito's Way, replaces Antoine Fuqua who had been previously linked to the project. The Untouchables: Capone Rising, will center around Al Capone and Irish cop Jimmy Malone and track Capone's rise as king of the underworld.

Screenwriters David Levien and Brian Koppelman have been working on the script. When the project was initially announced, Levien told Variety, "The film starts on the eve of Capone's arrival, and while Malone wasn't the most corrupt cop, he operated at a time when every cop was on the take.  Once he crosses paths with Capone, he sees a level of violence and criminality that causes him to have a moral awakening."

The '87 film, which starred Kevin Costner and Robert De Niro (as Al Capone), and the Untouchables TV series, which aired in the late '50s/early '60s and starred Robert Stack, were both based on Oscar Fraley's novel of the same name.

De Palma has just wrapped up work on The Black Dahlia for Universal and may make Capone his next project.

I just rented De Palma's obscure 1980 cult film Home Movies.  It is like his late 60's experimental films Hi Mom and Greetings.  It is quite different from his horror and action films.

My favorite Brain De Palma movie is probably Scarface. Carrie is probably his best achievement as a director but it's just too depressing to be my favorite. And it's disturbing as hell.

Poor Carrie  :yabbse-sad:

If my parents bought me Scarface paraphernalia every Christmas, I would carve them up in the bathtub with a chainsaw.

No, seriously.  I hate the movie that much.
Please don't correct me. It makes me sick.

Scarface isn't a GREAT movie, but I liked Al Pacino's wild performance. It seems to be a real love/hate movie for a lot of people.

A lot of the reason that i think it's hated is that douche bags love it.  it's not bad  but it's certainly not great.
