Jondee here at Rose Creek,

(l to r) Vincent D'Onofrio, Martin Sensmeier, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Ethan Hawke, Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Byung-hun Lee star in Columbia Pictures' THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.

The Seven ride again! Director Antoine Fuqua teams up again with Denzel Washington, from Training Day (2001) to The Equalizer (2014), as the leader of the Seven. The classic western by John Sturges had Yul Brynner as the leader of a group of gunfighters defending a village. This was of course based on the Akira Kurosawa samurai epic, Seven Samurai (1954). Fuqua has gathered a group of seven warriors before in his 2004 King Arthur film. Here’s the official press release:

Denzel Washington stars in Columbia Pictures' THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven.  With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin 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.

The film is directed by Antoine Fuqua.  The screenplay is by Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk.  The producers are Roger Birnbaum and Todd Black.
