Peter Sarsgaard is in final negotiations to play the main villain Bartholomew Bogue in Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of the classic western “The Magnificent Seven” at MGM and Sony Pictures.
In the film, Bogue is a robber baron whose hired thugs kill the husband of a woman (Haley Bennett) who hires a group of mercenaries to take back the small town that has become the baron’s stomping grounds.
The news comes as Jason Momoa has dropped out of the film which also stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee and Matt Bomer. Roger Birnbaum and Todd Black will produce.
