Sony/Columbia have debuted first image of Denzel Washington in The Equalizer, the upcoming big-screen take on the 1980s TV show.
Two-time Oscar winner Washington plays Robert McCall:
a solitary, monastic figure who hates injustice and devotes himself to helping people who are being victimized. With a no-nonsense attitude, compassion and experience with dealing with a wide variety of situations he’s a powerful and useful detective.
The next year’s action thriller will re-team Washington with his Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua, and co-stars include Chloe Grace Moretz, Marton Csokas, Haley Bennett, Johnny Messner and Robert Wahlberg.
Scripted by Richard Wenk and Alex Siskind, The Equalizer went through several incarnations over the past few years with both Nicolas Winding Refn and Rupert Wyatt dropping off the picture.
An update on the popular 1980s CBS series is scheduled to come out on September 26th, 2014.
Check out the first image below and look out for the film’s first trailer later this week.
