The Magnificent Seven remake has already found its heroes, and now it may have finally found its villain in Peter Sarsgaard.

EW has confirmed that Sarsgaard is in negotiations to play the devious part in MGM and Sony’s remake, which already has a magnificent cast that includes Matt Bomer, Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Haley Bennett and Luke Grimes. Variety first reported the news.

The Antoine Fuqua-directed pic is actually a remake of a remake, the 1960 Magnificent Seven being a spin on Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. The western version told the story of seven gunslingers who are employed to protect an oppressed Mexican village from a band of outlaws.
