Of all the people that this is going to make angry, nobody will be more angry than Junk. Now, I’m sure that this has been kicking around the rumor mill for a while now, and it isn’t like there aren’t other films inspired by Seven Samurai (The Magnificent Seven), but from what I’m understanding this is a full on remake.
The $60 million budgeted remake will be the contemporary version of the 1954 original film. According to Variety, the remake features a town in Northern Thailand recruits seven paramilitary contractors from around the world to defend the town from attacks.
I have a feeling this is going to turn into a weird version of crappy Jason Statham movie really, really quick. Thanks Weinstein Company. Thanks.
I will tell you one movie I’m super excited to see though, Takashi Miike’s Thirteen Assassins.
What do you think?
Thanks Latino Review
