Chris Pratt goes fishing in Magnificent Seven deleted scene
The titular gunslingers of this year’s Magnificent Seven remake range from Denzel Washington’s stalwart bounty hunter to Ethan Hawke’s scarred soldier, but Chris Pratt and Vincent D’Onofrio stole the show, playing a charming cowboy and a high-pitched human bear, respectively. And with Antoine Fuqua’s Western hitting shelves on Tuesday, EW has an exclusive look at a deleted scene uniting both characters.
Picking up shortly before the film’s climactic final battle, this scene finds Pratt’s Josh Faraday greeting D’Onofrio’s Jack Horne with a piscine breakfast, trading barbs and swapping stories about family. Over the summer, Pratt revealed that like his character, he spent his downtime on set fishing.
“The final battle sequence in Rose Creek, this set that they built, it was on this big chunk of private land and there were a couple of ponds on there and they were stocked with bass,” he said. “So I was loving it when the rain would come and they had to shut down production. Everyone is like, ‘God dang it.’ I’m like, ‘I’m going fishing!’ I must have fished 100, 200 hours on this movie.”
Pratt added that his penchant for fishing inadvertently upset the owner of the land where they were shooting.
“She was mad, she was like pretty furious,” Pratt recalled, laughing. “And she should be. They were really nice fish and I caught all of them.”
Fuqua’s remake of the 1960 classic is available digitally now and will be out on Blu-ray and DVD on Dec. 20.
