Chris Pratt is in early talks to star with Denzel Washington in MGM’s “Magnificent Seven” remake.
Antoine Fuqua is directing.
The 1960 original, itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai,” starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen. It centered on seven gunslingers who protect an oppressed Mexican village from a group of outlaws.
The script was most recently reworked by John Lee Hancock, with “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto writing the previous version.
