In 1960, Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen delighted audiences in the original version of “The Magnificent Seven.” The anticipated Hollywood blockbuster opens Sept. 23 and features a brand-new cast of actors. Produced on a budget of $95 million, the film is expected to earn $150 million, with $49 million coming in opening weekend.
The movie holds true to the original plot, which sees an eclectic band of outlaw gunfighters coming together to defend an oppressed Old West village from ruthless thieves. However, while the original Seven battled bandits to defend a Mexican town, the new group is comprised of hired mercenaries trying to save an American town from an evil industrialist.
Here is a look at the new “The Magnificent Seven” cast, their careers and net worths.
