Sean Bean joins Irvine Welsh’s The Magnificent Eleven

Trainspotting novelist Irvine Welsh has confirmed he will direct The Magnificent Eleven, a modern-day version of the classic 1960 western The Magnificent Seven.

 


For the update, the Cowboys are a local amateur soccer team, the Indians run a nearby Tandoori restaurant and the bandits are a group of menacing thugs run by a maniac called Blonde Bob.

 


Sean Bean, Dougray Scott and Robert Vaughan, the veteran actor who is the last surviving cast member from the original “Magnificent Seven,” will star.
