Hollywood rumour mills are churning out a story that Tom Cruise is spearheading a remake of the Magnificent Seven. It seems to be in "concept" stage only at present.

In an age where we have a dearth of Western films, any such rumour is greeted with enthusiasm.

The immediate question arises: WHO ? will be the Seven ??

Casting will spell the success - or failure - of the whole project - and presents a very daunting task: how can you match or equal the almost unparalelled cast of the original movie ? that starred Yul Brunner, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Eli Wallach, Horst Buchholz ...

Nearly every actor in the Seven was - or became - a bonafide movie Star in their own right.

Who would you cast as the Seven? Consider that Cruise likely will hold one role - possibly that which was played by Brunner (wonder if he'll shave his head?)

It's going to be interesting to see what they come up with.
