Denzel Washington Wanted For ‘The Equalizer’

14 December 2011 6:19 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Growing up in the 80′s and glued to the television for shows like Street Hawk, The A-team and Knight Rider, my favourite featured a middle-aged Brit helping the helpless and ‘taking out trash’. That may sound like series set in a care-home but no, The Equalizer featured the superb Edward Woodward as skilled private detective and vigilante Robert McCall, a man tired of seeing the world going to hell at the hands of the criminal scum. The iconic opening with synthesised music had me hooked and I never missed an episode in a show that ran for four seasons.

Now finally in news that has me giddy as a school kid once again Sony Pictures Entertainment has announced that Denzel Washington is wanted for a big-screen treatment. Check out the press release regarding the studios renewed deal with Escape Artists for more details on this and other projects they have in the pipeline. »

Odds Against You ? Call "The Equalizer"

13 December 2011 3:57 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sony Pictures reports it has extended its first-look non-exclusive deal with Escape Artists, the production company headed by partners Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch, who are currently developing a feature film adaptation of the 1980's television series "The Equalizer", to be written by Richard Wenk.

The project is being developed with actor Denzel Washington to star and Alex Siskind, partnering with Escape Artists to produce. Washington previously starred in Escape Artists' "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3" and starred in and directed "Antwone Fisher" for producer Todd Black.

"The Equalizer" , created by Michael Sloan, aired on CBS between 1985 and 1989, starring Brit actor Edward Woodward as 'Robert McCall', a former secret agent with a mysterious past, mixing ingredients from popular spy films and private investigator shows with violent realism.

McCall tries to make up for his 'past sins', by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter vigilante. »

Denzel Washington May Be ‘The Equalizer’

13 December 2011 1:32 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Looks like Paul Haggis and Russell Crowe aren't going to revive '80s TV show The Equalizer, after all. Last year Haggis was in talks [1] to write a big-screen version of the show that starred Edward Woodward as a retired secret agent who tries to atone for his violent past by offering his services, pro bono, to those in need. The film also had Crowe attached [2] to play the lead role, and it was easy to guess how he'd work out in the role originated by Woodward. But things change, and in the year since we last heard about the project both Haggis and Crowe have evidently moved on. Today Sony released a statement about the company's continuing first-look deal with production company Escape Artists. The release runs down several in-development projects, one of which is The Equalizer. It says that the film is being developed as a starring vehicle for Denzel Washington. »

'The Muppets' Movie Review (2011)

22 November 2011 3:25 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I grew up loving "The Muppet Show", watching the Muppet movies and tormenting my dog with a Kermit the Frog hand puppet. Considering that, I don't necessarily think you ever grow out of being a fan of Kermit and the gang. As far as I can tell, there is a universal, age-defying quality to their humor and when it comes to Disney's The Muppets, screenwriters Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller have managed to capture all of the innocent fun the Muppets represent while also opening Jim Henson's creation to a whole new audience as the film tracks the emergence of a new Muppet character named Walter and reintroduces us to the entire Muppet crew.

I will admit, however, that while I don't think you ever grow out of being a fan of the Muppets you can grow unaccustomed to their style. At least that was my experience over the »

'In the Land of Blood and Honey' trailer: Love in war-torn Bosnia, brought to you by writer-director Angelina Jolie

21 October 2011 2:06 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Typically, when an actor makes the jump into the director’s chair, they prefer to make small films, straightforward character studies that plays to their strengths. Think of Denzel Washington directing Antwone Fisher, or Tom HanksLarry Crowne, or Ben Affleck’s ever-expanding oeuvre of films set in Boston starring Afflecks. But there are exceptions. Think of Warren Beatty’s Red, or Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves — both big, burly, epic message movies about an overlooked period in history. To that list, you can now add In the Land of Blood and Honey, written and directed by Angelina Jolie. »

Good news, film fans: Sparkle has found her Stix.

Okay, so that sounds like either complete gibberish or a song title from an episode of "Jem," but it's actually the latest bit of hot movie news from Hollywood, as Deadline is reporting that Derek Luke is set to co-star as Stix opposite Jordin Sparks in the upcoming remake of the 1976 cult classic hit "Sparkle."

As you may recall, we reported last month that former "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks will by playing the lead role in "Sparkle," which tells the story of three sisters -- Sparkle, Sister and, um, Dolores -- who try to make it big in the world of singing only to face troubles that threaten to tear their family apart.

So where does Stix come in? Well, he's the friend who becomes Sparkle's manager -- and more, if you catch our drift -- only to face »

Vin Diesel To Star In Jane Austen Adaptation. No, Wait, It's Another Action Movie.

13 July 2011 5:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's not that the movie star is dead, as such, it's that domestic audiences (viewers abroad are still very much in thrall to "the star") are less and less willing to watch actors outside of the genre in which they made their name. It's arguable, for instance, whether Hugh Jackman is much of a draw when he's not playing Wolverine, while any hint of intelligence in an Adam Sandler film sees the box office takings plummet, and Denzel Washington is sensible enough to stick to the middle-brow thriller: when he tries something else ("The Great Debaters," "Antwone Fisher," "The Preacher's… »
