Magnificent Seven remake to open Toronto Film Festival.

The upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven has been chosen to launch this year's Toronto Film Festival.

Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke star in Antoine Fuqua's retelling of the 1960 western classic.

Oliver Stone's film about whistle-blower Edward Snowden, Ewan McGregor's first feature as a director and a film version of children's book A Monster Calls will also screen at the event.

The 41st Toronto International Film Festival runs from 8 to 18 September.

Antoine Fuqua, director of The Magnificent Seven, said he couldn't "think of a better place, or a better crowd for the film's world premiere."

Vincent D'Onofrio, South Korean star Byung-Hun Lee, Mexico's Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Native American actor Martin Sensmeier round out the film's titular septet.
