Transpotting' writer now has some good backing
Jeffrey Sullivan
Irvine Welsh, writer of the book 'Trainspotting,' will be directing the newest adaptation of the 1960s western 'The Magnificent Seven.' According to Sreendaily.com, 'The Magnificent Eleven,' called so because there are 11 members on a soccer team, is loosely based on the original, (which was also loosely based on Akira Kurosawa's 'The Seven Samuri'). The story is told as if a local amateur soccer team are the cowboys and the Indians are the owners and operators of a local Tandoori restaurant. The bandits are a group of thugs and criminals lead by a psychotic named Blonde Bob.

John Adams and Angry Badger Pictures are producing the film which, currently lists Sean Bean, Dougray Scott and Robert Vaughan as the stars. Vaughan is the last surviving cast member from the original Magnificent Seven. Sean Bean, most known in the U.S. for playing Boramir in 'The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,' and agent 006 in 'Goldeneye,' will be taking the lead role.
