Denzel Washington teams up with Training Day co-star

It was one of the most explosive on-screen partnerships in film history, and earned Denzel Washington his second Academy Award for his unforgettable performance as a dangerously corrupt cop.

Now pioneering action director Antoine Fuqua is about to re-team his Training Day stars Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke in his up-coming remake of the classic Western, The Magnificent Seven.

Chris Pratt will star alongside Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke in The Magnificent Seven remake.

This remake of the classic western, which already has Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt signed up, was originally made famous by Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen back in 1960 and followed the story of seven strangers who band together to protect a small Mexican village from the wrath of a notorious bandit and his henchmen.

With writers John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr Banks) and Nic Pizzolatto (one of the award-winning writer behind the critically-acclaimed TV series True Detective) penning the script, this remake looks set to be a hit when it’s released next year.
