While promoting his upcoming film, The Equalizer, Denzel Washington announced that he has signed on for a role in the eventual remake of The Magnificent Seven.
Set to direct is Antoine Fuqua, who has worked with Washington both on the soon-t0-be-released The Equalizer, and in 2003's Training Day, where Washington won an Academy Award for his role.
True Detective's writer Nic Pizzolatto has written the first draft of the remake, and multiple other stars have been associated with the film, including Matt Damon, Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, and Tom Cruise. Washington is the first actor to confirm a role in the film.
What do you think of the upcoming remake? Is it another case of Hollywood greed, or do you think it's time for a reimagining of the story?
