This XMAS we had the opportunity to experience the incredible Western directed by Quentin Tarantino´s The Hateful Eight. Now we’ll experience Antoine Fuqua´s The Magnificent Seven.
Of course, this film a remake of the 1960 Western film of the same name, which in turn was a remake of the 1954 masterpiece Japanese film Seven Samurai directed by Akira Kurosawa.
The film stars Oscar winner Denzel Washington (who previously worked with Fuqua in Training Day and The Equalizer), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World), Ethan Hawke (Training Day), Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket), Lee Byung-hun (Terminator Genisys), Manuel Garcia Rulfo (Cake), Martin Sensmeier (Lilin’s Brood), Haley Bennett (The Equalizer), Matt Bomer (American Horror Story) , and Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead).
Principal photography began on May 18, 2015, in the north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The film is set to be released in conventional and IMAX theaters on September 23, 2016.
The film looks very promising. Not only for the all-star cast but Fuqua has proved he is a talented director. What do you think? Are you interested?
