The Magnificent Seven is regarded as one of the coolest movies of all time. And Tom Cruise is regarded as one of the, um ... well, he used to pretty cool back in his Top Gun days. Now he's more widely recognised for being Scientology's most famous spokesperson with the occasional foray into the acting world.

But this hasn't stopped MGM signing him to it's remake of the Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson classic.

For those of you not in the know The Magnificent Seven tells the tale of a group of gunslingers who are hired by a village of Mexican peasants to protect them for a gang of bandits. It's a remake of Akira Kurosawa'sSeven Samurai and starred an all-star cast of acting royalty.

MGM have yet to announce anymore details regarding it's release and other pieces of casting but it joins a long list of other remakes the studio are currently working on including Carrie, Poltergeist and RoboCop.

Who said originality was dead?
