Marton Csokas (upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will play the villain in Columbia Pictures' The Equalizer. He will be joining Denzel Washington and ChloŽ Grace Moretz in director Antoine Fuqua's big screen adaptation of the 1980s TV show.

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.

In the movie, McCall is living a quiet life while working at a Home Depot when one of his acts of kindness towards a prostitute (Moretz) gets him embroiled with the Russian mob. Csokas plays a vicious fixer for the Russia mob.

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.

The Equalizer will shoot this summer in Boston.
