Ethan Hawke May Reunite With 'Training Day' Cohorts For THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN
There’s something to be said about a certain type of project and the goodness it brings when all the right people come together. In 2000, that very project came in the form of the award-winning crooked cop thriller, Training Day, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington.
If you haven’t seen it, just know that you’re missing out on one of the most terrific cinematic experiences you’ll ever have as it turns out with a handful of some of the best performances you’ll ever see. It certainly did the trick years after my own recognition of Fuqua came with action star Chow Yun-Fat’s hit role in The Replacement Killers, and you would be especially advised to make note of the director as well following the accolades he receivged with his paring with Washington for The Equalizer. All things considered, Fuqua and Washington may very well be working on a sequel to The Equalizer in due time, but not before adhering to their latest ensemble efforts in the forthcoming western thriller, The Magnificent Seven, reimagining John Sturges’s classic remake of auteur Kurosawa Akira’s 1954 epic, Seven Samurai.
