MGM is moving forward with their planned remake of "The Magnificent Seven" starring Tom Cruise. The studio has hired Nic Pizzolatto to write a script for the remake which was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 gem, "Seven Samurai." 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.
According to Variety, production of the remake could still be a ways off because of Cruise's schedule.
For now, take a look at the original 1960 movie:
