Denzel Washington linked with new Magnificent Seven movie

Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua may reteam again for the new take on The Magnificent Seven.

Arriving in cinemas later this year is the big screen take on The Equalizer that reunites Denzel Washington with his Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua. Reports suggest that there's already a sequel to The Equalizer in the early stages of development, but Fuqua and Washington may be reteaming on a different project first: a remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Appreciating that The Magnificent Seven itself is a remake of sorts, the new take had an original script by Nic Pizzolatto (of True Detective fame). How much of that screenplay remains in tact is unclear, but if Washington and Fuqua do sign on the dotted line, then expect The Magnificent Seven to be fasttracked. Expect the search for the other six to begin promptly, too.

In the meantime, you can expect The Equalizer in the autumn.
