Matt Bomer has joined the impressive ensemble cast of director Antoine Fuqua’s “The Magnificent Seven,” The Hollywood Reporter reveals.
The MGM remake of the 1960 Western classic already stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wagner Moura, Haley Bennett, Jason Momoa and Byung-hun Lee.
Written by John Lee Hancock and Nic Pizzolatto, the update finds Bennett's character hiring gunslingers to protect her town from Mexican bandits led by a robber baron. Bomer, who won a Golden Globe for his role in HBO's "The Normal Heart," will play the woman's husband, who tries to stand up to the outlaws' leader.
Next seen in "Magic Mike XXL," Bomer will star opposite Lady Gaga on FX's "American Horror Story: Hotel."
