It started as Seven Samurai, then became The Magnificent Seven. From there, you've got the sequels Return of The Seven, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, and The Magnificent Seven Ride. There was even Three Amigos, which spoofed many elements of the iconic Western (check out some Three Amigos quotes). Now, Tom Cruise will star in a remake.
Next maybe someone will do a Japanese adaptation and we can come full circle.
So far Cruise is the only person attached to the film, which is still in the early planning stages. Who would you like to see direct the remake and star alongside him?
Cruise is no stranger to remakes and adaptations, as he starred in four Mission: Impossible films through last year's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and will also star in the upcoming Rock of Ages movie based on the jukebox musical.
