Amazon is developing a series version of Hollywood classic movie The Magnificent Seven with True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto.
According to Variety, the project was originally in March with a series commitment. It was intended to be an original series but was refashioned to be a new take on the Western classic.
The logline for the reboot reads, “In the tradition of the great epics from the golden age of westerns, an outlaw and his cohorts must unite a disparate band of indelible fighters to defend a settlement of immigrant homesteaders in an open range war against cattle barons in central Texas, telling an expansive saga of adventure, action and romance.”
Pizzolatto will write and executive produce, with Mark Johnson, Lawrence Mirisch, and Bruce Kaufman executive producing. Amazon Studios will produce the project.
