Trainspotting Author Helms Western Remake

“Trainspotting” author Irvine Welsh will direct “The Magnificent Eleven”, a contemporary comedic remake of classic 1960 western “The Magnificent Seven” for Stealth Media Group and Angry Badger Pictures reports Screen Daily.

With a gritty UK setting, the new take on the story replaces the Cowboys with a local amateur soccer team, the villagers with Tandoori restaurant owners, and the bandits with a group of hoods.

Sean Bean, Dougray Scott and Robert Vaughan will star in the project. John Adams produces.
