As September 23, the date set for the release of ‘The Magnificent Seven’, draws near, the official trailer for the reboot of the 1960 film has been released.
The film, which will feature Hollywood big names like Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, will be co-financed by Village Roadshow, the MGM and Sony.
For the film, the three outfits put a modern spin on the 1960 film, which centers on a disparate group of seven gunslingers who are hired by a woman to defend her town from bandits led by a robbery baron.
Vincent D’Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier also star in the update — and, as the trailer (link above) shows, each has his own preference in weaponry.
Antoine Fuqua directs the film, featuring a screenplay by Nic Pizzolatto and Richard Wenk.
