Say hello to my little friend!"

When techno-freaks hear that classic line repeated in the upcoming "Scarface" (search) video game, it will have all the heft, authority and drugged-out insanity of the original.

That's because Al Pacino (search) is re-creating his role as the legendary gun-toting, coke-dealing, Cuban-American gangster Tony Montana for "Scarface the Game." (search)

Even though a handful of A-list actors have lent their talents to game projects, signing Pacino for "Scarface" was a coup for game developers at Vivendi Universal.

Eyebrows were raised earlier this year when Pacino was conspicuously absent from the announced cast of the eagerly anticipated "Godfather the Game" -- featuring the voices of Marlon Brando, James Caan and Robert Duvall.

Turns out he was saving himself for the lead role in his own title.

In the game, the bullet-riddled Montana has been miraculously resuscitated, so players pick up where the 1983 movie left off.

While rebuilding Montana's drug empire, they'll prowl the streets of Miami and various Caribbean locations, negotiating business deals, smuggling contraband and avoiding the DEA. They'll also rub out as many pesky "cocka-roaches" as they can.

Expect the hip-hop world -- whose members worship both video games and ultimate gangsta Montana -- to grind to a halt this fall when the game hits shelves.

"Scarface the Game" also features original movie cast members Steven Bauer (Manny Ray) and Robert Loggia (Frank Lopez). Jay Mohr, Cheech Marin, James Woods, Michael York and Michael Rappaport (search) provide additional voice work.
