"The Magnificent Seven" Remake in the Works, with Tom Cruise

Posted: May 22nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Magnificent Seven" Remake in the Works, with Tom CruiseSubmit Comment
MGM will begin shooting "RoboCop" and "Carrie" remakes later this year. And now comes word that the studio is also planning to remake John Sturges' 1960 Western "The Magnificent Seven," with Tom Cruise attached to star.

"The Magnificent Seven," itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic "Seven Samurai," starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz as a group of American gunmen hired to protect a small Mexican village from a group of savage bandits led by Calvera (Eli Wallach). The 1960 film was followed by three sequels, and "The Magnificent Seven" was remade as a CBS series in 1998-2000.

The project has yet to sign a director, but the search for a writer has started.

Love The Magnificent Seven one of all time favs.

A remake of one of the best classic film of all time with Steve McQueen? f*ck NO! And that dwarf of T. Cruise is certainly not going to help. He's got many talent but certainly don't have the cool attitude. Remakes after remakes, bunch of f*cking wankers! Try this for a change: write something new & original!!!

I thought the EXPENDABLES kinda covered this already, no?

Whatever they do on this one, they'll have to bring heavy Hollywood actors that will match to the 60s version...

My wish list (off the top of my head) would be...1) "The Cruiser" as stated above but followed by 2)Guy Pearce, 3) Kurt Russell, 4)JGL , 5) Terrence Howard, 6)Gary Oldman and 7)Chow Yung Fat. Magnificent 7 in my book anyways...

Now if they were really wanted to make it edgy and hard R (HAS TO)...let's see if they could actually top THE WILD BUNCH!!

TOP THAT ONE, HOLLYWOOD BASTARDS!!

Seven Samurai is one of my favorite films of all time. Kurosawa is a genius and a pioneer. John Sturges done it justice. Tom Cruise and his 6 over paid friends won't! Drop it!

Yul Brynner can only be played by Gordon Liu cause he's the Asian version of him and still alive.

WHy TOM CRUISE?WHat the f*ck are people smoking. He's always clean cut.NEESON would own this just watch Seraphim Falls.

@Cinemaisdead
If you want to be even more precise Kurosawa himself said that The Magnificent Seven was a better movie
@tt How can you not love it...that cast,that soundtrack,just amazing movie all around ...and btw..NO to to this travesty!

I havent even seen a Kurosawa movie yet.I hope is worth the hype.CHinese movies are superior.except for Lone Wolf and Cub and Zatoichi

If MGM makes even ONE original film, they'll go bankrupt immediately. Again. For the ninth time.

True story.

I just saw the original and loved. I'm not against this remake and even though I am a Tom Cruise fan, I never wanna see him as a cowboy hahaha. Its just ridiculous
minkowski writes:
on May 22nd, 2012 at 8:21:41 PM

But as a white samurai or some sh*t in Japan, yeah Cruise is totally believable...
KillerCOck writes:
on May 22nd, 2012 at 10:09:04 PM

hahaha ^ No White guy aside Josh Hartnett and Keanu Reeves would've been believable but I still thought it was a good movie. I'm a fan of the director and the soundtrack was dope!

My secret wish has been fulfilled.

Tom Cruise will get the Yul Brynner role, shave his head, get cancer, become all anorexic and palid and then die.

Just use the Expendables cast. But with the exception of that faggoty Rock of Ages crap, Cruise makes good movies.
