‘The Magnificent Seven’ Remake Loses Jason Momoa, Gains Peter Sarsgaard

by Britt Hayes May 21, 2015 @ 5:17 PM
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.
