Oh, I love a good western and when I heard that Antoine Fuqua was remaking one of the most iconic movies, I took pause. But these first images of the reboot of The Magnificent Seven have me busting out my wranglers and Justin ropers, that’s how cool it looks.
Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard, Byung–Hun Lee, and Matt Bomer star in the western written by Nic Pizzolatto of The Killing and True Detective and directed by Antoine Fuqua.
Here is the synopsis from Sony:
Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
Get ready for the trailer to drop Wednesday, April 20th.
The Magnificent Seven hits theaters September 23rd!
