The Equalizer Returns

This fall  an adaptation of the mid-late 80s TV show  THE EQUALIZER will hit the theaters. It  finds Denzel Washington stepping into a role originated by British character actor, Edward Woodward. The story concerns a former government operative turned pseudo-vigilante and do-gooder. It was a smart action series on TV and it looks like the movie will up the action a bit. The director is  Antoine Fuqua. The same guy that directed TRAINING DAy and  the rather awesome OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN. THE EQUALIZER opens September 26th. Stewart Copeland’s of Police fame did the pounding  theme for the TV show. No word on his connection with the film.
