EXCLUSIVE: MGM and Sony are putting some international flair into its ensemble cast for the The Magnificent Seven remake. Byung-hun Lee is getting the role of Billy Rocks, and the South Korean star joins the Antoine Fuqua-directed ensemble cast led by Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio.
Lee had showy turns in two G.I. Joe movies, but the international action star gets a real shot in Terminator: Genisys, playing the T-1000 cyborg that has all the liquifying capabilities that Robert Patrick exhibited in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
The Magnificent Seven is produced by Roger Birnbaum and Todd Black with Walter Mirisch and Antoine Fuqua are executive producers.
