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 Denzel Washington attached to play a "solitary, monastic figure who hates injustice and devotes himself to helping people who are being victimized."
Speaking of Refn, a release date has finally been set for his recently completed Thai boxing film "Only God Forgives." It is scheduled to open May 23rd.
