Tom Cruise - Tom Cruise To Star In Magnificent Seven

Tom Cruise is attached to the 'Magnificent Seven' remake.

The 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' actor is said to have been interested in the project - a remake of the 1960 movie - for some time, though it is unlikely to go into production for some time.

Studio MGM are currently looking for a writer for the movie, which also does not have a director attached as yet.

The original 'Magnificent Seven' movie - which was itself a remake of 1954's 'Seven Samurai' - starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz as a group of American gunmen hired to protect a small Mexican village from a group of savage bandits.

It spawned three sequels and was later remade as a TV series which ran from 1998 to 2000.

Tom can next be seen in musical 'Rock of Ages' and then in thriller 'One Shot'.

He is currently filming Joseph Kosinski's 'Oblivion', and will move straight on to Doug Liman's action movie 'All You Need Is Kill'.

As well as 'The Magnificent Seven', the actor is also attached to star in 'Van Helsing' and a comedy spin-off based on his 'Tropic Thunder' character Les Grossman, and he is eyed for a role in 'Top Gun 2', as well as Beyonce Knowles in his musical 'A Star is Born'.
