With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns — Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
The film is a remake of the 1960 film directed by John Sturges that itself was inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic Seven Samurai. According to Variety, the 2016 version of the Magnificent Seven is “really about seven men doing what they say they are going to do,” said Chris Pratt, who plays gambler Josh Farraday, one of the first of a group of honorable rogues who joins with Denzel Washington.
Fuqua, who previously teamed with Washington on “Training Day” and “The Equalizer,” said he chose a diverse group of actors because “I wanted it to look like the world we live in today,” and “I wanted guys who would have a great chemistry and a great time doing it together.”
The film also stars Haley Bennett, Matt Bomer, Billy Slaughter and Vinnie Jones.
