Denzel Washington in talks for “The Magnificent Seven” remake

PanARMENIAN.Net - Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua are in early talks to pair up yet again on MGM’s remake of “The Magnificent Seven”, Variety said.

Both men have the offers and while Washington is still weighing his options. Sources say it’s possible both will commit.

The original pic starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen and revolved around seven gunslingers that protect an oppressed Mexican village from a group of outlaws.

The script was most reworked by John Lee Hancock with “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto writing the previous version.

Washington and Fuqua first teamed up on the hit “Training Day” and their next pic, “The Equalizer” bows this September.

Schmoes Know broke the news that Washington had the offer.
