Eureka Distribution has acquired UK theatrical rights to The Magnificent Eleven, a modernization of classic The Magnificent Seven by co-writers Pete and John Adams in collaboration with Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh. Directed by Jeremy Wooding, the new story follows a band of Brits and one American (played by the original film’s Robert Vaughn) in London’s East End where the heroes are an amateur soccer team that reluctantly comes together to save a Tandoori restaurant from local thugs. Keith Allen and Philip Rhys also star. Plumcourt Production produced for the Adams’ Angry Badger Pictures in co-production with Filmgate Films and the Swedish regional film board and in association with Skyline Entertainment, Premiere Picture and Pure Film Productions.
