[Movies] Saving Mr. Banks Director Rewriting Magnificent Seven Reboot
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.24.2013

The Wrap reports that Saving Mr. Banks director John Lee Hancock is set to rewrite MGM's remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Tom Cruise was set to star in the film but is no longer involved. Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) wrote the first draft.

The first film was directed by John Sturges in 1960, based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 film Seven Samurai. It starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz. It featured a group of American gunmen hired to protect a small Mexican village for a group of bandits led by Calvera (Eli Wallach). It had three sequels and was remade as a CBS series in 1998-2000.

Cruise was first interested in May 2012 when MGM was working on the remake. However, he couldn't commit to the project due to his busy schedule. Pizzolatto was hired in August 2012 thanks the hype for his HBO miniseries True Detective which stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

MGM is looking at its library titles for more profit, with upcoming reboots of RoboCop and Poltergeist, as well as remakes of Death Wish and War Games.
