Chris Pratt in Talks to Join ‘The Magnificent Seven’


Chris Pratt is in talks to join Denzel Washington in the long-awaited remake of The Magnificent Seven.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star is in the early stages of negotiations with studio executives at MGM to appear in the Antoine Fuqua action film, a revamped version of John Sturges’ 1960 original, which featured Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Yul Brynner among a group of elite gunmen tasked with protecting a small Mexican village from an invasion of bandits, according to

Washington was tapped to re-team with his Training Day director Fuqua over the summer.

The Magnificent Seven film has been on MGM’s slate for some time, with Tom Cruise previously set to appear alongside Matt Damon in 2012.

An early draft for the reboot was penned by True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto and has since been reworked by The Blind Side screenwriter John Lee Hancock.
