Classic western The Magnificent Seven is getting a reboot and there’s an impressive cast playing all the major parts. Even better, a first teaser trailer for it was just released. The Magnificent Seven remake stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier and Lee Byun-hun. The movie is directed by Antoine Fuqua, who also worked with Washington on Training Day.
The film comes out on September 23rd, which means there’s plenty of time to see more footage. And I have to say, this Washington-Pratt duo already looks like something to look forward too – check out the first trailer below.
It’s not clear at this time whether the remake will be anything like the original movie, but the concept is similar. Take seven Wild West dudes and give them a rather dangerous — maybe even impossible — mission to defend some people in distress, and you’ve got a Magnificent Seven movie.
In case you haven’t seen the 1960 The Magnificent Seven movie — starring Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Eli Wallah — you’ve got plenty of time to catch up until September.
