Denzel Washington may get even in 'The Equalizer'
Denzel Washington may step into the shoes of a mysterious NYC vigilante in Sony's upcoming big screen version of the '80s TV drama "The Equalizer."
Airing on CBS from 1985 to 1989, "The Equalizer" starred Edward Woodward as a enigmatic man who tried to atone for a dark past by offering investigative services to ordinary people in need of free help (and sometimes helping them settle scores).
The feature film adaptation will be written by Richard Wenk and is being developed by Escape Artists Productions. Washington previously starred in Escape Artists' "The Taking of Pelham 123."
In addition to "Pelham," Washington's been in a number of thrillers lately, from "The Book of Eli" to "Unstoppable." He's currently shooting "Flight" with director Robert Zemeckis and will soon be seen in "Safe House."
