Chris Pratt Might Join 'Magnificent Seven' Remake

5 December 2014 7:29 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It seems like Chris Pratt is going to add another famous franchise to his filmography because he is currently in talks to join the cast of The Magnificent Seven remake. Denzel Washington is already attached to the film set to be directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). Talks are still very early -- Pratt would be the second to join the group of seven. 

The original 1960 Old West film, directed by John Sturges, was actually a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. So this new film is technically a remake of a remake (new trend guys!).

Magnificent Seven centered on a group of American gunslingers tasked with the job of protecting a small Mexican village from a group of criminals. What really made the movie cool is that it starred actors like Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson, who would go on to become major movie stars after the release of the film. »

Week in Review: Chris Pratt could join ‘Magnificent Seven’ remake

5 December 2014 6:23 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As if Chris Pratt doesn’t have enough giant tentpole films to deal with as he rockets his way to the A-list, the Guardians of the Galaxy star is now in talks to star in an actual Western, as opposed to a Western with dinosaurs or talking raccoons. Pratt is set to join a remake of Magnificent Seven, currently starring Denzel Washington, directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and written by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side). An original draft of the script was originally being handled by True Detective‘s Nic Pizzolato.

Deadline reported Thursday that signing Pratt could be a big step in actually helping the film get made, with the remaining five cast members still to fall into place. Previously, Tom Cruise was rumored to be the lead, with Matt Damon, Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman reportedly courted to join him. Although Pratt is no done deal either, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt is in early talks to star alongside Denzel Washington (The Equalizer, 2 Guns) in MGM’s remake of the 1960 classic Western The Magnificent Seven.

The library title, itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece Seven Samurai, was recently revised by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) and by True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, who wrote a previous version. Antoine Fuqua (Southpaw, The Equalizer), who previously acknowledged the influence of spaghetti westerns on his approach to making violent, anti-heroes/gunmen films, is attached to direct.

The latest rework centres upon seven gunmen who come together in the post-Civil War Wild West to help a poor village against a band of savage thieves.

Currently attached to star in the adaption of Andy Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s graphic novel Cowboy Ninja Viking, hot property Pratt is being touted to play ‘Farraday’, a character that may »

Chris Pratt in Talks to Join Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven Remake Starring Denzel Washington

4 December 2014 1:17 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Chris Pratt became a movie star this year, and now his name is a major deal when it becomes attached to any project (not that it wasn't before, but for studios, it comes with a bigger, well-deserved asking price).  Assuming Jurassic World is a hit, he could become an even bigger star with two successful franchises (three if you count The Lego Movie), but if that film flops at the box office or he loses some momentum (Guardians of the Galaxy 2 isn't due out until 2017), that could mean fewer opportunities. So the savvy move is to get plenty of projects while he can, and he's already signed on to star in the adaptation of the comic book Cowboy Ninja Viking.  Now it looks like he's taken a shine to the "cowboy" part, because he's in talks to join Denzel Washington in Antoine Fuqua's remake of The Magnificent Seven.

'Magnificent Seven' Remake Aims for Chris Pratt

4 December 2014 1:06 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt is in early talks to join Denzel Washington in MGM's remake of The Magnificent Seven. While the actor's character isn't being modeled after any original characters from the 1960 Western classic The Magnificent Seven, he will play a character named Farraday, if his deal goes through. The talks are in early stages at this point.

The 1960 film The Magnificent Seven, directed by John Sturges, was loosely inspired by Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic Seven Samurai. The story follows seven gunmen who are hired by a small Mexican village to protect them from from a nefarious tyrant named Calvera (Eli Wallach). Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, James Coburn and Horst Buchholz played the gunmen. The original spawned the sequels Return of the Magnificent Seven (1966), Guns of the Magnificent Seven (1969) and The Magnificent Seven Ride! (1972), although none of the follow-ups featured the entire original cast. »

Chris Pratt might saddle up with Denzel Washington in 'Magnificent Seven'

4 December 2014 12:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a busy couple of years for rising star and ab model Chris Pratt. He's toiled in government work on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," listened to a Walkman in space in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," will soon tangle with T-Rexes in "Jurassic World," and then suit up for the more than one hero role in "Cowboy Ninja Viking."  But something we haven't yet seen him do is don a stetson and a six-shooter. Will he be able to pull off the cowboy look in the upcoming remake of "The Magnificent Seven"? Pratt is in talks to join the film, which already stars Denzel Washington, and is being directed by "Training Day's" Antoine Fuqua, according to Deadline.  MGM has been trying to get the film rolling for some time. At one point, Tom Cruise was attached to the film, but he exited late last year. Roger Birnbaum is on board as producer. »

Chris Pratt Could Join Denzel Washington In The Magnificent Seven Remake

4 December 2014 12:31 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt is now in talks with MGM to join the Antoine Fuqua-directed remake of The Magnificent Seven, which already has Denzel Washington in the lead role.

Though the actor’s discussions with the studio are only in the early stages, he’s apparently eyeing one of the titular gunmen. For those unfamiliar with the original John Sturges-directed pic, it focused on a group of seven expert gunmen who are tasked to protect a small town from bandits. Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson starred in the 1960 version and it is widely considered to be a classic.

For the remake, Roger Birnbaum will be producing with a script from True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto that has since been re-written by John Lee Hancock. No word yet on who the studio has their eye on for the other five gunmen, »

Childhood Film Fascinations That Became All-Time Favorites

28 November 2014 7:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In celebration of Sound on Sight’s 7th anniversary, writers were asked to come up with articles that present their childhood favorites in the realm of films, TV shows, books or games.

I chose films and anyone who has any familiarity with my writing knows I am virtually incapable of writing an article about a single film so I’m going to focus on a number of movies I saw in my youth.

Growing up in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio, I was fortunate enough to have my own room and my own TV set.

My family didn’t go out to the cinema very often so my introduction to movies was primarily through television.

The household cable television was limited to the family room and the parental restrictions that went with that so a far as movie watching went, it was mostly just me in my room where there were no »

Exclusive Interview with Nick Damici for ‘Late Phases’

22 November 2014 9:34 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Werewolves should never mess with a blind Vietnam veteran.

From Dark Sky Films, director Adrian Garcia Bogliano (“The ABCs of Death”) presents a different kind of werewolf movie that takes place in a retirement community.

Here’s the synopsis:

Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one's golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose's abrasive personality.  But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst...

More retirement talk from Quentin Tarantino, discusses his inspiration for The Hateful Eight

11 November 2014 12:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of years ago, Quentin Tarantino suggested that he’d hang up his directing gloves after reaching ten films, stating that he didn’t want his filmography to suffer as he became an “old-man filmmaker”. Well, he’s now reiterated those thoughts during a Q&A at the American Film Market, where he was promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight.

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” said Tarantino (via Deadline). “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard. … I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, »

Film Face-off: 'Death Wish' vs. 'John Wick'

27 October 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Revenge is a dish best served on the big screen with bad people getting what they've got coming to them. Forty years ago, Death Wish starring Charles Bronson came out, and it's definitely considered one of the definitive revenge flicks of all time. Some of us at Movies.com hadn't seen the film (such as the author of this post). With John Wick out this past weekend, it's the perfect time for a revenge-off with this week's Film Face-off. With Death Wish being directed by Michael Winner, you might be thinking his name says it all. But John Wick is directed by Chad Stahelski, a stunt coordinator involved in The Matrix franchise, so Wick has a puncher's chance...

The Greatest Movie Death? ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’

27 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Editor’s Note: In the spirit of spooky time, the filmmakers behind The ABCs of Death 2 have all chosen their favorite movie deaths of all time, and Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado have agreed to shed some light on why they chose theirs. Take it away, Keshales and Papushado… There are million ways to die in the west, especially in Spaghetti westerns but the best way to go is being shot by the late and great Sergio Leone. This director really knows how to turn death into a huge spectacle of emotions. His death scenes are films within a film and the opening scene of Once Upon a Time in The West is the pinnacle of his work. For oh so many minutes Leone builds great tension by placing three gunmen in a train station. They all wait for their prey: Harmonica (Charles Bronson). It’s a long wait, and »
