Jason Momoa Join The Magnificent Seven Cast

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former “Game of Thrones” star has joined the cast of director Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven opposite Denzel Washington, Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt, The Equalizer‘s Haley Bennett, Boyhood‘s Ethan Hawke, Elite Squad‘s Wagner Moura and “Marvel’s Daredevil” star Vincent D’Onofrio.

The Magnificent Seven will remake the 1960 film directed by John Sturges that itself was inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic Seven Samurai. Sturges’ version starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn and Robert Vaughn as a group of disparate gunmen who come together to protect a Mexican village from bandits led by Eli Wallach.

The new film is said to feature a victimized mining town, taken over by a gold baron, rather than the Mexican village of the original.
