Neo your cast skews too old and too huge for the most part. Assuming the film follows the template of the original M7 and Seven Samurai, the big actors would be Cruise as the Yul Brynner role, a second big (almost equal) name for the Mifune/McQueen role, and a strong name for the bandit leader (assuming they go with Mexico again it'll be best to cast a Hispanic actor here, so Bardem is possible). And then you need a mid-20s actor to play the "kid" role from both films. The other 4 members of the 7 should be strong character actors in their 30s and early 40s.

We don't know how they are going to play it cast wise, they could go your way or mine. I was thinking an O11 cast or an Avengers type cast, all A-listers for the main roles.

I think we see A-listers differently. For me, an A-lister is a bonafide star with a big name and proven drawing capacity.The only "A-listers" in the O11 cast were Clooney, Pitt, and Damon, with Roberts in O11, Roberts/Zeta-Jones in O12, and Pacino in O13.The only A-listers in The Avengers were RDJ, ScarJo, and Samuel L. Hemsworth and Renner are on their way to the A-list but they won't reach it until they open a movie strongly without the help of Marvel.Having 8 A-Listers in a film is insanely expensive and it's only been done affordably when the movie is such that the stars take major paycuts in order to be a part of it because the film's that important (politically, socially, etc).

I remember when Brad Pitt complained he felt like second fiddle to Tom in Interview with The Vampire. Maybe leave him out of dreamcast?

Yeah, but that was the year that Pitt just started to break out in the movie business, now he is a bonafide star.

There`s no freakin way that those A listers will be in a Cruise movie. Any movie with Cruise must give best scenes and lines to Cruise. That`s a common knowledge. You really think JGL would fight in low gravity in Inception if Cruise was the lead? Yeah, me neither. It`s not knocking on him, just how Cruise brand works. He`s the old-fashioned movie star.If you put Brad, Matt or Leo in his place, than, yeah, you can expect other cast members will shine too.Now, who`s gonna play the female Magnificent? You know that shit is happening.
