Chris Pratt Up For “Magnificent Seven”

“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt is in early talks to join Denzel Washington in Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic western “The Magnificent Seven”.

A remake itself of Akira Kurosawa’s far more acclaimed “Seven Samurai,” the 1960 original starred the likes of Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen in the story of seven gunslingers who protect an oppressed Mexican village from a group of outlaws.

“True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto wrote an earlier script which John Lee Hancock has since revised. Talks with Pratt are still in the early stages but are reportedly progressing.
