'The Seven Samurai' Reboot Finds Its Director


British director Scott Mann is reportedly picked to helm the remake of Akira Kurosawa's celebrated movie.

The Weinstein Company has allegedly chosen a director to helm the remake of Akira Kurosawa's classic "The Seven Samurai". Variety reports that Scott Mann has been hired to tackle the project, which also has the backing of Kurosawa Productions.

Released in 1950s, the original version of "The Seven Samurai" tells a story of seven samurai hired to fight bandits. The movie, considered as one of the greatest cinematic works, inspired John Sturges' "The Magnificent Seven" which was released in 1960s.

The new version of "The Seven Samurai" will reportedly be produced with a $60 million budget. Meanwhile, John Fusco of "The Forbidden Kingdom" serves as the scribe. The reboot will center its story on a town in northern Thailand, whose people recruit seven paramilitary contractors from around the globe to defend the town from attack.

Scott Mann is best known for his 2009 film "The Tournament". He recently revealed that he is involved in several projects, including horror film "Saint Mary's". He will also serve as the executive producer in "The Drought".
