MUMBAI: Tom Cruise will be starring in the remake of the 1960-made Kurosawa film Magnificent Seven.
Though Cruise has evinced interest in the project, it is unlikely to go into production for some time.
The original film itself is a remake of the 1954 film, Seven Samurai which starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughan, Brad Dexter and Horst Buch. Later it was remade as a TV series which ran from 1998 to 2000.
Studio MGM is currently looking for a writer for the yet untitled film.
