First Look: Denzel Washington from Antoine Fuqua's 'The Equalizer'
Don't mess with this guy. We're due for a trailer sometime by the end of the year, until then this will have to hold us over. Columbia Pictures has debuted the first look at Denzel Washington in Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer, adapted from the 80's CBS show. The project has been in development for years and was finally filmed in and around Boston, MA earlier this year. Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington plays Robert McCall, a veteran covert operative who, seeking redemption, quits the his agency and puts a classified ad in the newspaper that reads simply: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer." Nice gun, McCall.
Here's the first look at Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer, tipped by RopeofSilicon. Stay tuned to see the trailer.
The Equalizer was originally a CBS show from the 80's that followed an operative with a mysterious past who once worked for a top-secret agency where he did some pretty horrible things. The gritty and violent series follows his exploits as he decides to right wrongs against the persecuted by settling scores with their antagonists and assorted miscreants. In addition to Washington, the cast includes Chloe Moretz, Melissa Leo, Haley Bennett, Robert Wahlberg and David Meunier, as well as Marton Csokas as the "ruthless fixer" Russian villain. Antoine Fuqua (of Training Day, King Arthur, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) directs from a script by Richard Wenk. Sony/Columbia will release The Equalizer on September 26th, 2014 next year.
