'Harry Potter' Director David Yates In Talks For 'Scarface' Remake

David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter films is in final negotiations to helm the Scarface remake.  And for those counting, this'll actually be the second remake of Scarface (the first film came in 1932 and was remade/retold in 1983).
I’ve learned that the studio is in final talks with British director David Yates who directed the final four films in the Harry Potter film series (#s 5, 6, 7, and 8 from 2007-2011) – and in my opinion should have won some Oscar nominations for them as the franchise grew dark and interesting under his helming.
