    • Synopsis
    • A modernisation of the classic western in which the Cowboys are a local amateur soccer team, the Indians run a nearby Tandoori restaurant and the bandits are a group of menacing thugs led by a maniac known simply as 'American Bob'.
      Irvine Welsh, the author of Trainspotting, is teaming up with Angry Badger Pictures and Stealth Media Group to make The Magnificent Eleven – a very loose remake of the classic western The Magnificent Seven.
      In the 1960 screen favourite - itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai – a diverse bunch of western gunfighters protect a Mexican village from bandits.
      But in this version, The Magnificent Eleven, the heroes are a Sunday League soccer team – which reluctantly bands together to save an Indian restaurant from local thugs demanding protection money.
