Welcome back to the biggest even on the Entertainment forum! I think the format of the last draft was just about perfect, so I'm going to be continuing that structure in this one.

The Basics
For those checking this draft out for the first time, let me explain some of the basics.

- Each participant will be putting together a hypothetical future film. You will be picking a director, your acting cast, and any other technical specialists you wish. This will be done through a snake style draft, with eight rounds (and the final two rounds being two selections per pick). You may pick any of these positions with any of your selections.

- Once the draft is finished, and you have your entire cast and crew set in place, you will be putting together a short write-up, giving us the details about your film. These write-ups can be as detailed as you want them to be, but must at least include the following....

1. Film Title
2. List of Characters/Corresponding Actor
3. A one paragraph description of what your film is about

Many participants also choose to write up their whole plot description, which is very much welcomed.

Rules

1. Trading is allowed, but must follow certain guidelines. Draft picks must be traded before the pick comes up in the draft. This is so that people aren't shopping around their pick while sitting on the clock. As well, all completed trades must be PM'd to me, and make sure that the trade is "official" before doing so.

2. After the draft is over, a 24 hour undrafted free agency period will begin, in which you can select any remaining roles you have left to fill on a first come first serve basis.

3. You are given 6 hours OTC (on the clock) before you are skipped. If you are skipped, the draft will move on without you, but you can come back at any time to make up lost picks.

4. You must have at least one "specialist". Obviously one director is needed, and the amount of actors is up to you.

4. IF YOU SEE THAT YOUR PICK IS COMING UP IN THE ORDER SOON, AND YOU DON'T KNOW IF YOU'LL BE AVAILABLE TO MAKE THE PICK, PM YOUR PICK TO ME!

Also, I'm going to make sure there is a solid review board for these next set of films.

I think I'm actually gonna do a comedy for this draft.

Considering getting a super cast of comedic actors and pairing them with an unlikely director.

I'm in. I have a really cool idea in construction. It'll be more serious than my last two which were just nostalgic fun.

I'm in for this one. Sorry about going MIA last time. Had a lot going on, broke my hand, and ultimately had too much of the movie to think up in too little time.

Should have a more complete idea ready to go for this one.

The Magnificent Seven
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Produced by Chris Brigham & Christopher Nolan
Written by Eric Roth, Christopher Nolan & William Roberts
Original Score by Trent Rezner
Run Time:154 minutes

Cast:

The Seven

Daniel Day-Lewis as Chris

Quote:
Chris is a veteran gunslinger, although he has grown weary of the profession. He is approached by Mexican villagers that are looking to buy guns to protect their town. He advises them to hire men instead, because it would be cheaper. After consideration, he decided to take their offer to protect the village, because for once in his life, he wants to do something good, and make a difference in the world.



Bradley Cooper as Vin

Quote:
Vin is a gambler, drunk, and womanizer. He first encounters Chris, when Chris stops a man from beating a prostitute. Later on, Vin looses all his money during a poker game. He gets into a drunken fight after he accuses the men of cheating. Chris comes to his help, and afterwards, he agrees to help Chris in saving the village.



Jeremy Renner as Britt

Quote:
Britt is one of the men that Chris locates and asks to join on the mission to save the Mexican village. Britt is a man of very few words. He would much rather let his cold, hard stare do most of his talking. He is a sharp shooter with a rifle, but his weapon of choice is his switchblade, which he uses in a fight.



Javier Bardem as Bernardo O'Riley

Quote:
Bernardo O'Riley is half Mexican and half Irish, but 100% killer. His name is known throughout the west as being the man to go to, for the tough jobs. He has squandered all his money, and is working as a farm hand, when he is approached about joining the group to protect the Mexican village. He agrees to the job because in his words "A little bit of money is better than none."



Josh Brolin as Hal

Quote:
Hal is a friend of Chris, although he does not share the same moral values. He wants fame and fortune, and as soon as he hears about Chris wanting men to protect a village, he makes his way to find Chris believing that he will be paid handily, and that there will be gold and jewels to have in the village.



Michael Shannon as Lee

Quote:
Lee is a wanted man. He is in the southwest hiding from authorities for a string of bank robberies throughout the east coast. He is nothing like the other six men. He is well dressed in the finest clothes from the east coast. He is well spoken, and well educated. He comes across the group as they are making their way to the village, and believes that a new life in Mexico is the new start that he needs.



Taylor Lautner as Chico

Quote:
Chico is a young, idealistic kid, that grew up in a small border village with nothing to his name. He believes that he must make a difference, and help the Mexican villagers get rid of the bandits. He is green, and knows little about gunfighting. He is spurned by Chris in the beginning, because Chris believes that he will be no help, but he follows the group, and finally proves himself, and is allowed to go with the group to the village.


The Bandits:

Benicio Del Toro as Calvera

Quote:
Calvera is the leader of the bandits that are harassing the Mexican village. He is a sadistic man, that will do anything to get what he wants. He takes food for him and his men whenever he wants. He even takes a woman or two, when the feeling is right. He also has no problem killing anyone who opposes him, and every so often he will kill one of the villagers, so they will fear him, and do whatever he says.



David Labrava as Ernesto

Quote:
Ernesto is Calvera's right hand man. He is just as, if not more cruel, as Calvera. He does whatever Calevra says without question, no matter how henious it might be.


Villagers:

Freddy Rodriguez as Hilario


Michael Pena as Miguel


Jay Hernandez as Alberto

Quote:
Hilario, Miguel, and Alberto are the town leaders, and volunteer to leave their village in quest to buy guns to protect themselves from the bandits. They run into Chris in town, and he sways them to hire experienced men to protect the town instead of buying guns themselves.



Roselyn Sanchez as Maria

Quote:
Maria is the granddaughter of Felipe. She meets Vin, and dislikes him at first because of his drinking, and gambling, but he ends up warming up to her, and they fall for each other.



Joaquim de Alameida as Felipe

Quote:
Felipe is the wise old man in the village, and the voice of reason.




David Zayas as Jorge

Quote:
Jorge is adamently against bringing in men to protect the town. He believes that the village can work out a deal with the bandits, and that if the men stay, everyone will be killed.
