Robert Loggia

Shoots Down "Scarface" Update

Say hello to a little controversy -- because Robert Loggia (that's R, as in Robert Loggia) says he's STRONGLY against the "Scarface" update that's reportedly in the works.

In case you haven't heard, Universal Pictures is rumored to have started production on a new "Scarface" project that's being described as an "update" from the 1983 classic.

According to reports, the new movie is supposed to contain elements from the '83 version (man becomes drug dealer, kills a bunch of people, etc.) ... but it's not a sequel or a remake.

But Loggia -- who played drug lord Frank Lopez in the Al Pacino version -- tells TMZ, "Scarface is a classic that should rest in peace!  Nuff said!" 

He always tells the truth ... even when he lies.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

"...even when he lies."? What does that mean? They really don't need to remake this movie. Considering how dated it is, it actually ages pretty well. If they remake it, they'll turn it into some pop-hip-hop piece of trash. Then again, when classics have been remade, no one except the simple-minded remember them. Don't even get me started on this sacreligious Point Break remake.

It's a reference to a line that Al Pacino's character Lefty said in "Donnie Brasco".
