LOS ANGELES, Sept 23 ― The cast and director of western remake, “The Magnificent Seven” have been talking about diversity in Hollywood and the epic's gruelling shoot ahead of the film's release.

“The Magnificent Seven” stars, among others, Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Byung-Hun Lee. It follows a band of outlaws as they come together to defend a gold mining town from murderous baron.

Washington says that rather than being a reaction to Hollywood's diversity issue, it's cast is more about being historically accurate. ― Reuters
