After casting Jason Momoa and Lee Byung Hun for the remake of the 1960 classic American western film “The Magnificent Seven“, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM Studios) revealed that Matt Bomer will be joining the cast too.
Several A-listers have already signed on to the movie, such as Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ethan Hawke, and Wagner Moura. However, their roles in the movie were not revealed yet.
There is currently no official synopsis, but it is said that the remake will revolve around a group of gunslingers who are hired by a desperate woman (played by Haley Bennett) to protect her beloved town from rampaging bandits. It will take place in a mining town instead of a Mexican village like the original.
Bomer will be taking the role of the husband of a yet-to-be named woman. It is also revealed that his character will be a hero who will do whatever it takes to defend his town against the onslaught of the robbers and their leader.
The remake of “The Magnificent Seven” is based on a script by John Lee Hancock and Nic Pizzolatto, with Antoine Fuqua attached to direct.
