Members of the Scarface cast said hello to their not-so-little friends once again as they reunited in LA for the launch of Brian De Palma's film on Blu-ray.
Stars Al Pacino, Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia, F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman gathered at the Belasco Theatre in an event filled with the kind of trappings Tony Montana would recognise. Minus the tiger.
“The Blu-ray is coming out and it just keeps going! It’s a film that’s always been close to my heart,” said Pacino, who was reportedly paid $100k for his services.
Co-star Steven Bauer also praised the HD version of the film, especially The Scarface Phenomenon, an all-new documentary that explores the film's place in cinema history.
“It’s really beautiful [on Blu-ray] and the sound is amazing. It comes with a documentary that is a killer. It’s the ultimate for fans and people who love the movie,” Bauer said.
In an on-stage Q&A Pacino noted the rap industry's love for the movie so it was only fitting that Ludacris performed for guests at the afterparty.
Scarface is released on Blu-ray on 5 September 2011.
