According to Film Music Reporter, Sony Classical is set to release the original soundtrack to The Magnificent Seven, which was James Horner's final film project left incomplete due to his sudden passing one year ago. Horner's collaborator Simon Franglen completed the film score on Horner's behalf.
The album is scheduled for a September 16 release date.
The film opens in North American theaters one week later on September 23.
The synopsis is as follows:
With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
