Hollywood star

Denzel Washington

has been confirmed to star in a remake of The Magnificent Seven.

The 59-year-old actor will again reunite on the project with The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua, who was first linked to a retelling of the 1960 Western earlier this year, reported Variety online.

Producer Jason Blumenthal described the film as wish fulfilment and said, "In a world where a lot of injustice gets all the attention, it's nice to see a movie where someone is doing something about it."

Sony Pictures is reportedly looking to develop the film into a franchise, although the producers are being cautious.

Producer Todd Black said, "We just want to see this one work. The audience will tell us."
