Tony Montana’s 'Femme Fatales' Turn Up the Heat in Scarface: The World Is Yours
Company: V.U.G.
LOS ANGELES (May 10, 2006) – Vivendi Games’ Sierra Entertainment has signed five of Hollywood’s sexiest actresses and models to lend their voices to the roles of the “Femme Fatales” – Tony Montana’s female companions – in the upcoming video game Scarface: The World Is Yours licensed by Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. Vida Guerra, Meagan Good, Jillian Barberie, Amanda Righetti and Diora Baird will take on the roles of Tony Montana’s love interests in the hotly anticipated video game due this Fall.

“Tony Montana said it best: ‘You gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women,’” said Cindy Cook, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer for Vivendi Games. “Scarface: The World Is Yours will be a faithful recreation of living the life of Tony Montana, so we had to cast the hottest women in Hollywood. Our Femme Fatales cast exceeds even Tony’s highest standards.”

In the game, the Femme Fatales play an important role in the development of Tony Montana’s character and abilities. Once Tony has increased his “Reputation” sufficiently, he will meet and court the women, eventually convincing each Femme Fatale to live with him in his Miami mansion. Once each Femme Fatale joins Tony, the player will receive a special performance bonus and additional “Reputation” points, helping to improve the gameplay performance of the lead character.

Vida Guerra (Chappelle’s Show), Meagan Good (Roll Bounce, You Got Served), Jillian Barberie (Good Day L.A., NFL on Fox), Amanda Righetti (The O.C., North Shore) and Diora Baird (Wedding Crashers, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) join an already unprecedented array of Hollywood’s brightest film and television stars that will help bring drug-lord Tony Montana’s criminal empire to life. Stars from the original 1983 classic film are joined by today’s hottest talent in providing voice-over performances for the game.

Scarface: The World Is Yours will plunge players deep into the seedy underbelly of 1980s Miami as they become Tony Montana to rebuild his fallen empire and seize vengeance on his enemies. Further announcements about additional cast members will be made later this year.

Scarface: The World Is Yours is expected to ship this Fall for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game and entertainment system and Windows PC. For more information about Scarface: The World Is Yours, please visit the game’s official Web site at www.scarfacegame.com.
