THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN is an upcoming Western/crime film directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer, Southpaw), a remake of the 1960 western film of the same name, which in turn was a remake of the 1954 Japanese film Seven Samurai (七人の侍). The film stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Lee Byung-Hun (이병헌), Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, and Peter Sarsgaard.
With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Washington), Josh Farraday (Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Hawke), Jack Horne (D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Lee), Vasquez (Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (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.
