Fuqua Tackles "Magnificent" Remake Next

25 September 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Equalizer" and "Olympus Has Fallen" director Antoine Fuqua, out doing press rounds for the former, has confirmed to Movieweb that his upcoming remake of classic western "The Magnificent Seven" will be his next project.

John Sturges helmed the original 1960 film, which itself was based on the Akira Kurosawa 1954 cinematic classic "Seven Samurai". Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz starred in 'Magnificent' as a group of American gunmen hired to protect a small Mexican village from a group of savage bandits.

The remake will star Denzel Washington as one of the seven, and they're currently seeking actors to play the other six. In regards to the film he says:

"Yeah, that's (The Magnificent Seven) where all of my attention is going. When I get back to L.A., I'll meet the casting team and start to get into it with the producers and everybody next week. »

Denzel Washington May Star in Antoine Fuqua's 'Magnificent Seven' Remake

5 June 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems that director Antoine Fuqua's proposed remake of "The Magnificent Seven" is getting a serious dose of star power: Denzel Washington is reportedly interested in taking the lead.

Schmoes Know writes that Washington has been offered the starring role in the remake ofde the classic western, and his ties to Fuqua -- the pair worked together on "Training Day," which nabbed Washington an Oscar, and are currently collaborating on the TV adaptation flick "The Equalizer" -- may draw him in.

The original "Magnificent Seven" debuted in 1960, and was a loose remake of Akira Kurowsawa's iconic film, "Seven Samurai." It starred Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Yul Brynner, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and Horst Buchholz as the titular seven American gunmen.

Fuqua reportedly chose "Seven" over several other high-profile projects (including a possible sequel to "The Equalizer," which has been testing well in the months before its release »

Denzel Washington and Director Antoine Fuqua Reteam for 'The Magnificent Seven'

5 June 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

MGM is moving forward with its long-planned remake of the 1960 classic Western The Magnificent Seven, with Denzel Washington and his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua in early talks to star and direct.

We first reported on the project back in August 2012, when Nic Pizzolatto signed on to write the script, long before his hit HBO series True Detective debuted. Tom Cruise was also attached to star at that time, but he dropped out of the remake in December, just as John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks, The Blind Side) came on board to rewrite the script.

The Magnificent Seven debuted in 1960, loosely inspired by Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic Seven Samurai. The story follows seven gunslingers (Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, James Coburn and Horst Buchholz) who are hired by a small Mexican village to help defend their homes from the villainous Calvera (Eli Wallach).

Violent Saturday DVD Review

27 April 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Richard Fleischer

Starring: Victor Mature, Richard Egan, Stephen McNally, Virginia Leith, Tommy Noonan, Lee Marvin, Margaret Hayes, J. Carrol NaishErnest Borgnine

Running Time: 90 minutes

Rating: 12

Extras: Making of feature by Nicolas Saada and a video appreciation by William Friedkin

Masters of Cinema’s new release, Violent Saturday, takes us back to a time when the gangsters were sharp, the dames were dubious and low lifes were everywhere.

Released in 1955, Richard Fleischer’s crime drama certainly doesn’t skimp on the pulp and violence (as you might expect from its title), but it leans more towards small town melodrama with some unpleasant undercurrents, than full blown film noir.

This genre merging is helped by the film’s look as much as its plot. Violent Saturday is shot both in colour and CinemaScope (an anamorphic wide lens) and presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.55:1 for home release. Add »
