Antoine Fuqua Up For “Equalizer” Reboot

“Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua and actor Denzel Washington could be re-teaming for the upcoming reboot of “The Equalizer” franchise at Sony Pictures.

Fuqua (“Olympus Has Fallen”) is in early talks to hop onto the project which has seen a revolving door of helmers in recent months including Nicolas Winding Refn and Rupert Wyatt.

Edward Woodward starred in the classic CBS television series about Robert McCall, a former operative of a covert intelligence organisation who seeks redemption for his dark past via offering his services to those being persecuted and in need of help.

The film keeps the basic premise, but then goes off on its own tangent with Washington attached to play a retired intelligence officer living a quiet life. One of his acts of kindness gets him embroiled with the Russian mob.
