Legendary gunslinger Thell Reed is at the helm of affairs here

Hollywood continues its affair with the Wild West with The Magnificent Seven, the remake of the 1960 Akira Kurosawa classic of the same name. The film stars the who’s who of Hollywood, like Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard and others.

One other name that the film boasts of is Thell Reed, the renowned gunslinger who has trained the best in the business – right from Steve McQueen and Russell Crowe to Brad Pitt. Ethan Hawke, who worked closely with Thell for the film had this to say about him, ““He is an old cowboy and a quick draw professional. He taught Steve McQueen to shoot back in the old days and he was on set and he is about 70 years old and it would be 104 degrees heat and he was an amazing presence to have on set.”

Action fans can gear up for an exciting time with Magnificent Seven hitting theatres this week.
