The Baton Rouge-shot reboot of Magnificent Seven has added another rider to the cast. Fifty Shades of Grey and American Sniper star Luke Grimes have joined Antoine Fuqua’s remake. Luke Grimes has had a very impressive last twelve months as he appeared in two of Hollywood’s most talked about features.
With the addition of Grimes, the cast includes Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Liam Neeson, Haley Bennett and Vincent D’Onofrio, who will play the villain. The synopsis of the Magnificent Seven reboot begins shortly after the Civil War. The setting takes place in a war-torn town inhabited by a ruthless gold mining tycoon and his fearsome thugs. A man is brutally killed and his widow calls upon a bounty hunter to settle the score. The bounty hunter calls upon six other guns to help take down the gold mining tycoon and his thugs.
The role of Luke Grimes is yet to be revealed but we can make assumptions that he will be one of the six riders. Grimes also has a new project on the horizon called Freeheld, a gay rights drama with Julianne Moore and Ellen Page. He’s also been in Taken 2, Brothers and Sisters and the Louisiana-shot HBO vamp camp series True Blood.
Production for Magnificent Seven will begin May 18 in Baton Rouge. If you want to work on Magnificent Seven visit jobScene for further information.
