    "Star Wars: Rogue One" star Diego Luna is set to play iconic Miami drug lord Tony Montana in the remake of "Scarface," according to a new report.

    Luna, 37, is attached to star in the remake, which will differ from the 1983 film that starred Al Pacino in more ways than one, Variety reported.

    In the 1983 film Pacino played a Cuban immigrant who rose to power in a Miami drug cartel. The remake will be set in Los Angeles and Luna will play a Mexican immigrant.

    It's unknown who will tackle the role of Elvira Hancock, played in the 1983 version by Michelle Pfeiffer. A release date hasn't been set.
