“Training Day” sequel, you say? Nope, but it’s close enough. The stars of the Academy award winning “Training Day” Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, and director Antoine Fuqua will be teaming up again for a remake of the 1960 film “Magnificent Seven”.
The original 1960 “Magnificent Seven” film was a remake of “Seven Samurai” which is about seven gunslingers who protect a Mexican village. The western village will be the setting for the Nic Pizzolatto written film but that is about all we know as far as the plot goes. We are going to assume that Hawke and Denzel will be one of the seven gunners in the film alongside Chris Pratt and Hailey Bennett.
MGM is hoping that bringing Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke back together along with Fuqua behind the lens will recreate the success they had with the iconic 2001 film which exceeded all expectations in the box office by a long shot and became recognized as a classic while snagging an Oscar.
Looks like they might have another classic in the making on their hands with this one. Guess we will have to wait and see. Let us know how you feel about seeing the duo back together on the big screen.
