Antoine Fuqua Offered Directing Job for New Magnificent Seven Remake
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 05.28.2014

THR reports that director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen) has been asked to direct three major studio films after he finishes his current gig.

One project he has been offered is the second installment of The Equalizer, based on the 1980s show. Fuqua directed the first film for Sony. The film is reportedly testing "through the roof" and a sequel has already been greenlit. The first installment is due out September 26. Denzel Washington is slated to return as Robert McCall.

Another project he's been offered is a remake of the classic western The Magnificent Seven for MGM. Currently, MGM is looking at Brad Pitt to star in the film from a script by Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective).

Fuqua has also reportedly received an offer from Fox to direct the film Narco-Sub, which is being produced by Ridley Scott. The film "centers on a notorious Ecuadorian drug lord who forces a disgraced American naval officer to pilot a submarine carrying a huge shipment of cocaine past the United States Coast Guard's best defenses."

According to the report, it's not clear which project Fuqua currently favors. He's now working on Southpaw, the boxing drama written by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) and starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
