Chloe Moretz ("Kick-Ass," "Hugo") has reportedly scored an offer to play the female lead opposite Denzel Washington in Antoine Fuqua's "The Equalizer" big screen reboot at Sony Pictures.

The role was originally penned for a twentysomething. However, Moretz reportedly left Washington and studio execs very impressed during a chemistry reading with Denzel.

As a result, the prostitute character is being redrawn with her in mind. Now, it's expected to be akin to something like Jodie Foster's acclaimed turn in "Taxi Driver".

Also, the original 1980s TV series creator Michael Sloan has made a deal to write an original novel that will continue the adventures of the Robert McCall character.

Richard Wenk wrote the film's script, while Sloan, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch, Alex Siskin, Mace Neufeld and Tony Eldridge are producing. An April 2014 release is being targeted.
