Denzel Washington may mount up for 'Magnificent Seven' remake

5 June 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Denzel Washington may be going from vigilante to gunslinger. The Oscar winner is circling a role in MGM's upcoming remake of "The Magnificent Seven," which would reunite him with "Training Day" director Antoine Fuqua. Both have received offers to join the film, according to Variety. The 1960 original starred Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson and James Coburn as the titular gunslingers who unite to protect a small Mexican village from recurring outlaw attacks. It was based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 film "7 Samurai," and the formula has also been adapted to fit films based in outer space ("Battle Beyond the Stars") and the insect world (Pixar's "A Bug's Life"). It's unknown if the new version will take place in the Old West, or be transferred to the modern day.  Tom Cruise was attached to the film at once point, but exited late last year.  The remake script was written by "True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto, »

Denzel Washington and ‘Training Day’ Director in Talks for ‘Magnificent Seven’

5 June 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Word that MGM has plans to remake The Magnificent Seven started to make the rounds online around two years ago, back when the project was being envisioned with Tom Cruise receiving top billing, as far as the cast goes. The project has been showing new signs of life over the past six months (following Cruise’s departure); first, with John Lee Hancock (The Alamo, The Blind Side) being recruited to revise the screenplay, from an earlier draft by Nic Pizzolatto (creator of True Detective) – and, just last week, with news that Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen) has been offered the chance to direct the project.

The Blind Side Director John Lee Hancock Boards Lenny Dykstra Biopic

5 June 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Their last collaboration, sappy sports drama The Blind Side, won Sandra Bullock an Oscar and received a nomination for Best Picture, and now director John Lee Hancock and producer Gil Netter are set to team up again, for an untitled biopic centering on former Major League Baseball all-star Lenny Dykstra.

Details about the project are being kept largely under wraps, so it’s unknown whether the film will focus on Dykstra’s time playing for the New York Mets or on the shady financial empire he built later, which included a jet charter company and a magazine specifically geared towards professional athletes. Dykstra’s financial dealings after retiring from baseball led to a 2012 conviction for bankruptcy fraud, concealment of assets and money laundering. The former athlete spent six months in prison, did 500 hours of community service, and paid $200,000 in restitution after pleading guilty to the charges.

It’s likely that »
