He Will Equalize
Liam Neeson, move – Denzel Washington wants in on a piece of your Older Star as Action Star pie.
The Oscar-winning Unstoppable heavyweight is thisclose to finalizing a deal to star in The Equalizer, a loose adaptation of the 1980s CBS show that followed a onetime military covert ops agent who can’t stand injustice and helps civilians in need.
The project – which is being developed as a potential franchise for Washington (his first) – doesn’t have a director yet, but Richard Wenk, who wrote The Mechanic, is hard at work a screenplay.
