I have never seen the original The Magnificent Seven (I know I know), but the remake from Antoine Fuqua looks fun! The cast looks amazing (Denzel and Chris Pratt together!), and it just looks like it will be a fun movie to see when it comes out in September (23rd to be exact). More westerns need to be made…even though this is a remake but maybe if this is successful then it will happen.
The movie stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Luke Grimes, Wagner Moura, Haley Bennett, Matt Bomer, and Peter Sarsgaard. Screenplay was written by John Lee Hancock, Richard Wenk, Nic Pizzolatto so maybe there will be lots of talk about time being a flat circle?
It also will feature some of the last pieces of music composed by the late, great James Horner. Simon Franglen also composed the score as well since I’m sure Horner didn’t complete the score. Not sure they will be able to top Elmer Bernstein’s original score though.
