Dubbed right now as Carlito's Return (which wouldn't make sense as a prequel so it will most likely be changed). I bet this will be ****ed up but if done right could be cool. Carlito was kind of legendary so I'm guessing the prequel will be showing how he became legendary. I'm guessing this one will end dramatically like the last one but will be him going to prison instead of dying. Brian De Palma won't be directing it and Jay Hernandez will be replacing Pacino. Thats where the movie will most likely have its downfall. I'm affraid to see the results.
Greg Oden: The future of the Blazers. The future of the NBA.
the original i loved, but how are they gonna replace pacino? they cant use him cos all the make up in the world wont de-age him.
“Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction -- its essence -- has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.”
They're really trying to increase the number of Hispanic mega-stars in American movies, though, to correspond with their growing numbers in the population. It wouldn't surprise me a bit to see this movie happen, plus about a dozen others in a similar vein.

Sean Combs Joins Carlito's Way

October 14, 2004
Fox 411 has learned that Sean Combs will be joining Jay Hernandez, Luis Guzman, and Burt Young, in the cast of Carlito's Way, The Beginning. The film is a prequel to the 1993 Brian De Palma feature that starred Al Pacino as Carlito.
The story follows Carlito (Hernandez) through Spanish Harlem's no exit world of gangs, drugs, pimping, and the Mob, from the 1940s to the early 1970s.
"The Beginning," will begin production shortly and will be written and directed by Michael S. Bregman, son of producer Martin Bregman.
So, basically, a Latino "The Godfather" with P. Diddy? This movie is totally unmerited, and while Bergman produced the original, it still reeks of failure and disinterest.
"Carlito's Way" was about redemption, and Carlito getting his life back on track. It's all too ****ing apparent what kind of lifestyle he led before, which in turn makes a prequel totally pointless, especially when it's "stars" are anything but.
