The 50-year-old former Wimbledon FC hard-man will star along with an A-list cast that includes Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke, reported the Mirror.
Tabloid media reveals that the details of the film are being closely guarded but the ‘Snatch’ star is offered a role.
Sources claim that someone at the studio suggested the role to the actor and it seems to be widely agreed that he’d be a perfect addition.
The remake, which is expected to release in 2017, will follow the same story as the 1960 original about a gang of gunfighters hired to defend a village against Mexican bandits. (ANI)
