Description

It's hard to believe, given his long and varied career, that Denzel hasn't starred in a western. Well, there's good news for fans who feel that's an oversight. Denzel is leading the new "Magnificent Seven," revealed in the film's first teaser trailer Wednesday. His look is reminiscent of Melvin Van Peebles in "Sweet Sweetback's Badass Song" and Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson. "Training Day" Director Antoine Fuqua re-teams with Denzel for a new take on the classic western as desperate townsfolk enlist a group of seven outlaws and misfits played by Washington, Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Byung-Hun Lee, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Martin Sensmeier. The seven take on the ruthless industrialist played by Peter Sarsgaard.
