EDIT

The Magnificent Seven has built itself an interesting cast, but they just lost one valuable member: Jason Momoa has departed Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic western, presumably due to his Aquaman commitments. On the flip side, the film may have lost Momoa, but it just added Peter Sarsgaard in the role of the big bad villain.

Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven just got a whole lot more badass. In addition to Fuqua favorite Denzel Washington and everyone-favorite Chris Pratt, the film has just added former Game of Thrones star and future Aquaman Jason Momoa, as well as G.I. Joe: Retaliation star Byung-hun Lee. This film sounds like it’s going to be pretty damn tough.

More like Jacked Gyllenhaal, am I right? One of the summer releases that isn’t getting a lot of attention just yet is Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw, starring a totally ripped Jake Gyllenhaal as a distraught boxer punishing himself in the ring following a horrible tragedy — oh, the trailer doesn’t hide it, so why should we: his wife dies in an accident, leaving him to raise his daughter alone.

Vincent D’Onofrio playing a bad guy is about as reliable as the changing of the tides, the sun rising in the morning or…as Vincent D’Onofrio playing a bad guy. We’ll get a little taste of his penchant for fictional villainy next month when Marvel’s Daredevil series hits Netflix, but he’s already made plans for his next dubious role: the actor will play the villain in Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven (which seems to have dropped the “the” because it’s 2015 and no one has time for that) has added another actor you really like to its line-up of stars. Ethan Hawke, fresh off an Oscar nomination for Boyhood, has joined Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Haley Bennett in the remake of the western classic, which follows a team of gunfighters who team up to protect a small Mexican town from bandits.

Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Southpaw' Transformation Is Truly Astonishing

When actors transform for a role, we take notice (and most of the time, so does that little golden statue named Oscar). Christian Bale in ‘The Machinist,’ Matthew McConaughey in ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ Charlize Theron in ‘Monster,’ Christian Bale in the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, etc. Jake Gyllenhaal recently joined the club when he dropped 25 pounds to play the sociopathic Lou Bloom in ‘Nightcrawler,’ and now he’s at it again with his incredible transformation for his next film, Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Southpaw.’

'The Equalizer' Premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival (And It's Insane)

“If this were a TV show, I’d watch it every single week.” These were the words I spoke right after watching Antoine Fuqua’s theatrical version of ‘The Equalizer,’ which is kind of a dumb thing to say considering that ‘The Equalizer’ was a TV show. Though, this updated version of ‘The Equalizer’ bears little resemblance to the mid-‘80s version, even though it kind of has everything to do with it.

First of all, Antoine Fuqua – who directed ‘The Equalizer’ (which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival) and directed Washington in his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Training Day’ – is the definition of the word “character.” When you enter a hotel room to interview Fuqua, personality is just bouncing off of the walls.

Denzel Washington returns to action in '‘The Equalizer' trailer, though he's a little slower than he used to be. Instead of taking out a room full of criminals in sixteen seconds it takes him nearly twenty. Maybe it's time to retire.

'The Magnificent Seven' Remake Is Hunting Down Denzel Washington

1960 classic 'The Magnificent Seven' is a film built entirely on a foundation of star power, and the impending remake is looking to follow suit. New reports reveal that the one and only Denzel Washington is being sought for the film, and we won't lie, there are few people we'd rather see kick ass in the old West than him.
