"Seven Samurai" Remake Hires Director

Posted: May 4th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Seven Samurai" Remake Hires DirectorSubmit Comment
The Weinstein Company has hired Scott Mann to direct a remake of Akiro Kurosawa's 1954 classic "Seven Samurai." the film will have a budget of around $60 million.

In the remake, a town in northern Thailand recruits seven paramilitary contractors from around the globe to defend it from attack. John Fusco (The Forbidden Kingdom, Young Guns) has written the script. The plan is to begin filming later this year.

Mann's resume is pretty weak. He most recently directed "The Tournament" with Robert Carlyle and Ving Rhames. It went straight to DVD.

Akiro Kurosawa's films are on the list with Hitchc*ck and Kubrick of films that should never be remade under any circ*mstance. Just watch the original you f*cking grease balls.

Sounds like failure that cost 60 million,asian movies are not popular in the US.

Freudian said it right.

We should all start a petition to get all these classic films remade.

Who is Scott Mann? I Imdb'd him and I have to guess he's the Scott Mann of the nine people listed who did "The Tournament??"

Haven't seen the Tournament yet but it sounds like the movie Mean Guns with Christopher Lambert and Ice T with a higher budget and still a fail.

f*ck you Wienstien you greedy f*ck.
Seven S is a piece of art not a multiplex cash grab and does not need remaking.

I've just read somewhere that Kurosawa was the first director to use slow motion in an action movie, about 50 years before Bay overkilled it completely.

Occassionally a director makes a film so perfect that it need not be ever tried again. This is one of those rare occassions. Sounds like an amateur filmmaker just wants to link his name to the greatest filmmaker who ever lived.
