Washington 'set for Magnificent 7'

Denzel Washington is tipped to star in the remake of The Magnificent Seven.

The Oscar-winning actor has been offered the lead role in a reboot of the 1960 Western, according to the website Schmoes Know.

Others sources report that talks with Denzel, 59, are still in the early stages.

If the star does sign up he could be reuniting with his Training Day and The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua, who is said to be in negotiations about taking the reins on the film.

Variety reported that both men have had offers and could commit.

The original movie starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen and was about a group of gunmen who were hired to protect a small village from bandits.
