Latino Actor Diego Luna To Play Lead in “Scarface” Reboot?
In recent news regarding the “Scarface” reboot, it seems like the film might just got its leading man!
After the announcement of director Antoine Fuqua leaving the reboot project, Variety has reported that actor Diego Luna, from “Rogue One”, will be starring in the film.
The reboot of “Scarface” will tell the story of an immigrant from Mexico in contemporary Los Angeles.
Previous rumors included Leonardo DiCaprio to be up for the lead role for the reboot. If the rumors were true, it would have been the second time for “Scarface” that a non-Latino would portray a Latino lead.
Luna’s performance in the latest Star Wars film, “Rogue One”, was a positive example of Latino representation in Hollywood films, after Luna decided to keep his thick Mexican accent for the role.
