Matt Bomer saddles up for The Magnificent Seven

MGM's remake of The Magnificent Seven continues to round up its band of gunslingers, with THR reporting that Matt Bomer is the latest name on the team sheet.

According to the report Bomer will play the husband of Haley Bennett's character, whose failed attempts to stand up to the strong-arm tactics of a villainous gold baron leads to the assembly of the titular collection of badasses. Whether he goes on to join said septet remains unclear…

Bomer joins a thoroughly stellar ensemble that includes the likes of Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt and Vincent D'Onofrio. Anrtoine Fuqua directs from a script penned by Nic Pizzolatto and reworked by John Lee Hancock.

Co-starring Jason Momoa, Wagner Moura and Byung-hun Lee, The Magnificent Seven will open in the UK and US on 13 January 2017.
