Renowned actor Denzel Washington had said that he loved working with director Antoine Fuqua. in the reboot of famous 1960 classic, The Magnificent Seven. The actor also said that he is elated to do a movie again of a 'western' genre.
Western, once a much-credited genre, is on the verge of a decline in Hollywood as the movie makers are much obsessed with superhero themes.
"It's fun because we're on our horses and we're all together and guys are talking, cracking jokes and you know, the guys are spinning their guns. I never had the opportunity - and I don't know if I'll get another opportunity - to do a western," said Denzel.
"Maybe it shouldn't even be called a western - it's a story that takes place on the frontier, on the edges of a young and new America."
"And it's about what happens on those edges when there's lawlessness and sometimes a lack of order so men like these seven will come together to make sense out of it." Denzel added.
However, Denzel Washington had to go through a rigorous training as a part of preparation for the character in the movie. He trained with Thell Reed, a renowned sharp shooter, who would always tell him to slow down his action stunts.
"He would always tell me 'smooth is fast.' You know, I have fast hands and I've been boxing for years. I'm just fast but he was always telling me 'slow down! Slow down!' Thell is the man. He's worked with John Wayne. You know, he's the man. He's the truth..." said an all elated Denzel.
