MGM Wants Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua For The Magnificent Seven Remake
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.05.2014



Deadline reports that MGM is in very early talks with director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington for a remake of 1960's The Magnificent Seven.

The original film was directed by John Sturges and starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson. It was released by United Artists and is a library title for MGM. The story follows a group of seven gunmen who are put together to protect a town. It was inspired by Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. It is set after the Civil War near the end of the "Wild West".

MGM has been trying to get a remake made for some time and even had Tom Cruise attached at one point. Nic Pizzolatto (writer and executive producer of HBO's True Detective) wrote a script and John Lee Hancock did a rewrite.

Fuqua and Washington previously worked together on Training Day, which got Washington an Academy Award. They also worked on The Equalizer, which arrives later this year. The script was written by Richard Wenk and the film is apparently so good that Sony is already developing a sequel.
