As far as remakes and reboots go, the 2014 adaptation of hit TV series, The Equalizer, seems to signal that director Antoine Fuqua knows how to gel with certain properties on par for big screen prospects. Thus, his latest comes by way of another remake classic, The Magnificent Seven, previously iterated by John Sturges with respect to late film auteur Kurosawa Akira.
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.
