The 1960 western "The Magnificent Seven" is a classic of the genre. It was as shameless but fun remake of "The Seven Samurai." It had a great cast that included Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Eli Wallach. It was essentially about seven cowboys who kicked ass and took names.
In the remake, it will be Denzel Washington, Chriss Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio who are cowboys kicking ass and taking names. This will also be something that is richly diverse. I am not just talking about the mere Washington casting. This group of seven includes an Asian and a Native American in the ranks. This looks like it will have a more fun tone than the original, so it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
