Soup Dragon Cast In Scarface Remake

Scarface is getting a reboot – and fans are divided over Universal’s choice for character Tony Montana.


A young Al Pacino played the original power-crazy coke-fiend Montana in Brian De Palma’s 1983 gangster movie. But the remake is set to feature children’s’ TV star the Soup Dragon, best known for supplying green soup to a family of extra-terrestrials known as the Clangers.

Harry Potter director David Yates said:

“I love the first one so much, and this remake is so unnecessary & such a stupid idea that I don’t want to ruin the memory of that. So it just felt like, let’s just restart it with the Soup Dragon playing Tony Montana. We can have green soup instead of cocaine and 1970’s space ray guns made from lolly sticks and string. It’s going to be like nothing you’ve seen before,”

While the original 1932 movie was about a prohibition era criminal, and the 1982 version was about a small time crook, the 21st century reboot is about an immigrant’s rise to power in the seedy underworld of present day Los Angeles.

Fans of the movie have expressed concern that a plasticine, animated dragon that runs a soup kitchen for moon aliens won’t have the necessary presence or edge of menace needed for the role.

“Oh it’ll be alright,”

Said a spokesperson for Universal studios.

“We’ll just throw loads of money at it, get some wacky effects going, loads of explosions and get it trending on Twitter. It’ll be fine,”
