After exiting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel film currently slated for a 2014 release, Deadline report that Wyatt is now in early talks to take the helm for The Equalizer, which will see Denzel Washington take front and centre in the big budget version of the original TV series.
Washington came on board the adaptation back in December 2011. And we had heard back in December last year that Nicolas Winding Refn was in talks to take the helm. But when he ultimately decided not to come on board, the search continued at Sony, and reports suggest it’s been a hotly-contested job.
And now Sony and Escape Artists could well have found their director, if talks proceed well with Wyatt.
