Everyone ready for yet another '80s TV series set to be adapted into a movie?

No? Well too bad!

Sony Pictures and Escape Artist recently renewed their first look deal until 2015, and one of their first projects will be a new version of the old school CBS crime drama The Equalizer, which told the story of an aging New York vigilante with a mysterious past, with Denzel Washington stepping into the role that Edward Woodward originated!

Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal says:

"We have been partners with (Escape Artists) for more than a decade and we trust them implicitly for a simple reason: they have first-rate taste. They carefully choose the projects that they want to make and they have a very focused and disciplined development process. We couldn't be more thrilled to continue our collaboration with them."

Despite our distate with the constant remakes being pumped out in Hollywood, we actually think this has potential to be pretty cool translated into modern day!

And of course, Denzel is always decent incentive for an action movie!

What do U think?? Will U check this one out??

    Commenting on 2 stories you've posted with comments off. The one before this about the gay moms; it's nice to see there are literate and educated members of the gay community as opposed to your Jimmy Kimmel story, a truly unreadable post with sentences and wording that make no sense at all. You really show why the country's educational system scores so low when compared to other nations.

    If anyone should be stepping into Woodward's iconic role, it should be Michael Caine.

    Personally I have been looking forward to this remake & Denzel Washington in the part of Robert Mac Call I think would be brilliant as he is a first rate actor & some of his films have had him portray such characters as this before.
    Cannot wait & Micheal Caine would well too old for this now

    I remember watching the show. And considering Denzel is one of the great dramatic actors of our time, I'm sure it'll be a great movie.

    Re: Lady Who? – The reason comments are off is because he doesn't want to see the idiotic comments. But instead of honoring his request to not comment, you hijack another comment thread and crap all over it with your useless idiotic ramblings ANYWAY. Mission accomplished, jack ass.
