Despite Ayer most recently being known for Suicide Squad, he does have some experience with crime dramas with movies like Street Kings and End of Watch.
In 2014, the Scarface remake was slated to be helmed by Chilean director Pablo Larraín, who announced it would follow a Mexican drug dealer. He wrote the screenplay for Training Day. He grew up in East Los Angeles.
Universal and Ayer are just entering early talks, which could break down before anything is signed on the dotted line.

Ironically, the only thing giving anyone any hope for this project is the fact that Universal gave the script over to several other writers following Ayer's initial draft, and the version that will now purportedly be shot by Ayer was crafted by none other than the Coen brothers.
Diego Luna, who took on the role of Cassian Andor in Rogue One, will play the title character in this complete reworking of the tale, which first hit the big screen in 1932 as a classic gangster flick before Brian De Palma got his hands on it. Oliver Stone wrote the 1983 classic, with Al Pacino in the Diego Luna role.

Next up for Ayer is Netflix's Bright starring Will Smith as a Los Angeles Police Department police officer who teams up with an Orc cop in a world that's populated by humans and mythical creatures.
The new "Scarface," will be produced by Dylan Clark for his Dylan Clark Productions and Scott Stuber. Plus, it presumably keeps him away from Gotham City Sirens, a film I'd much rather see someone else - anyone else - step in to direct.
Universal has dated the Scarface remake for Friday, August 10, 2018. Anything is possible with DC.
