His Olympus Has Fallen hitting theaters tomorrow, Antoine Fuqua is now said to be in talks to take over Columbia Pictures’ upcoming adaptation of The Equalizer. Deadline has the news of the potential match, which would re-team Fuqua with his Training Day star Denzel Washington.
A feature film adaptation of the hit 1980s television series, the original show was created by Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim. It starred Edward Woodward as Robert McCall, a private detective with a lot of contacts who is available for hire if you have a problem that you don’t know how to solve.
The movie was written by Richard Wenk with Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch producing through Escape Artists, alongside Alex Siskin, Mace Neufeld, Tony Eldridge, Michael Sloan, and Washington.
