Have you ever wanted to appear in a movie with Denzel Washington. Well the ‘Training Day’ duo, Ethan Hawke and Washington are teaming up again for the upcoming movie the ‘Magnificent Seven’ and casting directors are looking for actors, models, and talent to work on the upcoming feature film. ‘Magnificent Seven’ will also feature Chris Pratt.

The 1960 original, itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai,” starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen. It centered on seven gunslingers who protect an oppressed Mexican village from a group of outlaws.

This will be the second time Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington worked on a movie together. Their first movie, ‘Training Day’ was a major hit in the box office and led to both men receiving Oscar nominations, with Denzel Washington winning an Academy Award for best actor.

Central Casting Louisiana is looking for extras to work on scenes filming around Baton Rouge, St. Francisville and Zachary, Louisiana. Filming will begin shooting in May through August and there will be lots of opportunities for multiple days of work.
