MGM’s The Magnificent Seven is zeroing in on a director. Antoine Fuqua has reportedly been offered the Western remake, written by True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto.

Which is pretty good news for Fuqua in itself, but that’s not all. He’s apparently also eyeing the former Tony Scott project Narco Sub at Fox, and The Equalizer 2 at Sony. Hit the jump for the latest on all three potential projects.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

John Sturges‘ 1960 Western The Magnificent Seven featured an iconic cast that included Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, Horst Buchholz, and Eli Wallach, so it’s only appropriate that the new remake brewing at MGM seems to be collecting some top-level talent as well.

The project’s off to a good start on that front already with Tom Cruise attached to star, and if this new report is to be believed, Cruise is about to get some other high-profile company in the form of Matt Damon, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Costner. However, considering the notoriously unreliable source, that’s a very big fat if. More after the jump.

What was once already a remake might be again. John Sturges’ The Magnificent Seven is arguably one of the greatest remakes of all time because it took an already classic film, Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, and put a new spin on it giving the movie an original and unique feel. Feudal Japan became the American West. Instead of molding the idea of seven men hired to defend a village into something surprising or different, MGM is now reportedly developing a straight, Western remake of The Magnificent Seven with Tom Cruise attached to star. No director has been hired, the studio is out to writers and the film is a long way from coming to fruition. But it’s in the barrel. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Wonder Women of America

Amos 2008
$29.99/ £14.95

As many readers know from Slashfilm’s coverage and personal experience, the annual Comic-Con convention in San Diego consistently sets records and milestones for attendance, media exposure, and the mainstream acceptance and co-opting of genre and geek culture. The new 192-page photo book, Wonder Women of America, documents the diverse and growing number of females of North America who participate in the event by dressing up as—and often creating—fantastical characters befitting the subculture.

Steve McQueen: A Life in Pictures
Edited By Yann-Brice Dherbier
Pavilion 2008
$40.00

Growing up in the ‘80s, a decade of the chiseled Reagan-approved action hero and gun-toting smartass, my introduction to Steve McQueen was via a Beastie Boys lyric on Paul’s Boutique. Given his widespread fame and acclaim in the ‘60s and ‘70s, even today his appeal seems hushed, like a group of dads discussing cars a few feet away from you. Taking in this slick coffee table book of personal living room photos, photos of “McQueen’s machines,” and countless shots on-set, this personal observation was only magnified; more proof that there will never be another Hollywood actor like him—or another Hollywood ready for one.
