Bean, Scott and Vaughan Board The Magnificent Eleven


“Trainspotting” novelist Irvine Welsh will direct gritty UK comedy The Magnificent Eleven, a modern-day version of the classic 1960 western The Magnificent Seven, reports Screen Daily.

In the updated story, 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.
