Nicolas Winding Refn to Direct 'The Equalizer' Starring Denzel Washington

THR Heat Vision:
Nicolas Winding Refn is in early talks to helm Sony's big-screen remake of 1980s TV series The Equalizer.

The project, scheduled to go into production in late spring, will star Denzel Washington as Robert McCall, a veteran covert operative who, seeking redemption for his dark deeds, quits a CIA-like agency and puts a classified advertisement in the paper that reads simply: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer." (Cinema, Denzel Washington, Nicolas Winding Refn, The Equalizer)

I loved the show and I can see Denzel as the Equalizer.
