The small town of Rose Creek has fallen under the control of Bartholomew Bouge. He is pressuring citizens to sell their property to him for money. The citizens of Rose Creek band together to figure out a way to fight the evil man. They gather at a church, but while the crowd gathers, Bouge burns the church to the ground. One of the townspeople stands up to Bogue and is killed in front of everyone. The man’s wife leaves town to find someone to help them. In her travels, she comes across a man, and she witnesses him take out several men all at once. The man is Sam Chisolm. He is uninterested in the woman’s story until she mentions that Bartholomew Bogue is the one responsible for all the violence and chaos. Chisolm agrees to help the woman and recruits six other men to help. Chisolm and his crew go to the town and attack Bogue’s men. Although they retreat, Chisolm warns the town that Bogue will be back with vengeance. Chisolm, Faraday and their men train the townspeople in combat, so when Bogue and his army return, the town is ready to handle them.

Growing up, his grandmother exposed him to films such as Shane (1953) and The Searchers (1956), which were his inspirations during the conception of the remake. Seven Samurai also played a major role in developing the film. According to Fuqua, the subjects addressed in the film are still prevalent today, and he wanted The Magnificent Seven to make a resounding statement for the people.
