MGM is moving forward with their planned remake of "The Magnificent Seven" starring Tom Cruise.

The original starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz. They played a group of American gunmen hired to protect a small Mexican village from a group of baddies headed by Eli Wallach.
