Irvine Welsh to direct The Magnificant Eleven
13 February, 2010 | By Mike Goodridge
Trainspotting novelist Irvine Welsh will direct gritty UK comedy The Magnificent Eleven, a modern-day version of the classic 1960 western The Magnificent Seven in which the Cowboys are a local amateur soccer team, the Indians run a nearby Tandoori restaurant and the bandits are a group of menacing thugs run by a maniac called Blonde Bob.
John Adams and Angry Badger Pictures are producing the film which is set to star Sean Bean, Dougray Scott and Robert Vaughan, the veteran actor who is the last surviving cast member from the original Magnificent Seven.
Stealth Media Group is selling the film in Berlin.
