In the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed big-screen adaptation of “The Equalizer”, Denzel Washington will play a former CIA killer who has retired to a life of loneliness, reading books, drinking in coffee shops, and working at the Home Depot. Then Russian pimps get under his skin and it’s asskicking time. Watch out, Russian pimps! New Zealand actor Marton Csokas (Celeborn from the “The Lord of the Rings” films) has now joined the cast of “The Equalizer” as the film’s villain, described as “a vicious fixer for the Russian” mob. Besides the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Csokas was also in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (though he’d probably love you to forget about this one), and will be playing Damian Lord in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” (a potentially more memorable role — or at least, compared to “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

Kick-Ass 3 has offered its first preview.
The writer has promised that the third outing of Dave Lizewski will be his last.
"It's all about a rite of passage. It's about a kid whose mum has died and he's not really that enchanted with the real world. He's become absorbed in this fantasy world of comics but he's taken it to the next level and gets dressed up as these characters."
He also said that, if the title were to continue in any form, it would star Big Daddy and be set before the events of the first series.

Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz will most likely end up starring alongside Denzel Washington in the Antoine Fuqua-directed film The Equalizer. According to the report, Sony Pictures said Moretz has a strong reading with Washington, and they are going to offer her the part of the lead female role, Teri.
The studio was originally looking to cast a twenty-something year old in the role. Moretz, who is still a teenager, must have just blew them all away because they made an exception. They redrew the role, and she will play a young prostitute in the movie, which the report says is "reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver." Moretz is a great young actress that is really taking on some edgy movie roles. I'm sure she's going to be great in the part.
The story centers on Robert McCall, a former spy turned private detective. For those of you not »

We already learned that Antoine Fuqua replaced Nicolas Winding Refn and take over Columbia Pictures’ upcoming adaptation of The Equalizer with Denzel Washington set to star. Now comes word that only sixteen years old, Chloe Moretz has been cast as the female lead for the big-screen adaptation of Michael Sloan‘s popular ’80s crime show. Moretz will play the role of a Teri, a young prostitute, reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. The role was written for twenty-something actor, but a reading between Washington and the Kick-Ass star has yielded some very impressive results. Since the actress has tweeted that she ‘cannot wait to start,’...

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any new news concerning the upcoming big-screen adaptation of cult television series The Equalizer, but today we’ve got a new casting update. We’ve known for some time that Denzel Washington is set to star in the film – which will see him playing a former CIA agent dedicated to helping people in need – and that the project will reteam him with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua. However, today’s news reveals that the female lead of the film has been redesigned – so that it can be played by Kick-Ass starlet Chloe Moretz. Deadline reports that Moretz did a reading with Washington, and their chemistry so impressed everyone in the room that the part is now hers if she wants it. While the original...

The role was originally penned for a twentysomething. However, Moretz reportedly left Washington and studio execs very impressed during a chemistry reading with Denzel.

She may only be 16 years old but Chloe Moretz is certainly not afraid to take on mature roles. If you’ve seen her in Kick-Ass, Hick, Let Me In or in the trailer for the upcoming Carrie remake, you’ll know that she’s not intent on just playing it safe. Now, to push the envelope even further, she’s currently in talks to star as a prostitute in The Equalizer, which has Denzel Washington locked in for the lead role.
If she signs on, Moretz will play the female lead, a character named Teri. Apparently, director Antoine Fuqua was looking for an actress that was a bit older to take the part but Moretz recently participated in a table read for the role and blew everyone away. Of course, the character of Terri immediately draws parallels to Jodie Foster’s role in Taxi Driver and we can easily see »

We already know director Antoine Fuqua is reteaming with his Training Day star Denzel Washington for The Equalizer, an adaptation of the 80s television show of the same name, featuring a solitary former special ops member who helps people in need. Now the film has just acquired a fantastic female lead in the form of Chloe Moretz. Deadline says a reading between Washington and the Kick-Ass and Let Me In star yielded some impressive results, so much that she's playing a prostitute that was written for someone about 20-years-old. Moretz just turned 16 this past February, but on the big screen, she's very mature for her age. For those just joining us, The Equalizer was a CBS show from the 80's that followed Robert McCall, an agent with a mysterious past who once worked for a top-secret agency where he did some pretty horrible things. The gritty and violent series follows »

Chloe Moretz is said to have impressed both Denzel Washington and the film's producers and director so much in a "chemistry read" with Denzel that they've decided to essentially rewrite the role she's been offered in the film, which was initially for a twenty-something prostitute. Moretz is 16 years old. But looking at her resume, despite her age, she certainly hasn't shied away from edgier roles - see the upcoming Kimberly Peirce-directed Carrie, and of course playing Hit-Girl in the Kick-Ass franchise. By the way, Antoine Fuqua will direct The Equalizer for Sony Pictures and Escape Artists, from a script written by Richard »

Exclusive: A couple of intriguing developments have happened on The Equalizer. After a strong reading with Denzel Washington, Chloe Moretz is getting the offer from Sony Pictures to play the female lead in the drama that will re-team Training Day tandem Washington and Antoine Fuqua. At the same time, Michael Sloan, creator of the 1980s TV series, has made a deal to write an original novel for Thomas Dunne Books that will continue the adventures of Robert McCall, the shadowy character originated by Edward Woodward who’ll be played on the big screen by Washington. Moretz is a surprise choice to play the role of Teri, in that the role was originally drawn for a twentysomething. After Moretz did a chemistry reading with Washington, he was very impressed as was everybody else, and the role will be redrawn for Moretz to play a young prostitute, reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. »

There are few projects that have gone through as many different directions and incarnations then the attempt to bring Michael Sloan's popular '80s crime show The Equalizer , starring the late Edward Woodward, to the big screen, but it's finally coming together as a Training Day reunion between Denzel Washington and director Antoine Fuqua, to be distributed by Sony Pictures. Deadline has added a new piece to the puzzle and it might be a surprising one as they're reporting that Chloë Moretz, the bad-ass Hit Girl from Kick-Ass and the upcoming remake of Carrie , has scored the co-lead in the film opposite Denzel, playing a young prostitute named Teri, a role written for a slightly older actress. Comparisons are already being made of the relationship between Washington's Robert »

John Romita Jr. is an icon in the comic book realm, a legendary artist whose credits over the course of his esteemed tenure have included stints on books like The Avengers, The Uncanny X-Men and The Amazing Spider-Man. Recently, however, Romita’s name has been linked to an offbeat comic he co-created with Mark Millar, and Hollywood’s successfully edgy adaptation of said materials. Romita and Millar birthed Kick-Ass, the well-intentioned by unprepared costumed teenager personified by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the surprise hit of 2010. Romita and Millar’s grungy comic environments were a welcome antidote to the big-studio superhero efforts of hr recent past, and the movie connected with audiences who prefer darker humor in their...

Laggies tells the story of a 28 year old woman stuck in perpetual adulthood, who lies to her boyfriend when he proposes marriage to her. Instead of going on a retreat as she tells him, she spends the week hanging out with a group of teenage friends.
Originally, Shelton had intended to cast actress Rebecca Hall (The Town, Iron Man 3) in the lead role, but Hall exited the project to star in Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence opposite Johnny Depp. It was at that point that Shelton cast Anne Hathaway, fresh off the heels of her Oscar win for Les Miserables. Unfortunately for Shelton, it looks like Hathaway has bowed out to star in Christopher Nolan »

I'm not sure what I think of a live-action adaptation of Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio, especially if it were to be directed by Tim Burton, which was the original plan with Robert Downey Jr. set to star as Geppetto. As it turns out, that iteration of the story seems to have gone by the wayside, but now it seems Downey has a new helmer in line... his Tropic Thunder director and co-star, Ben Stiller. Recently Downey floated the idea to Sky Italia saying, "I would like to make it with Ben Stiller" and since then the rumor hasn't gone away to the point Deadline.com now reports Stiller is in talks with Warner Bros. to direct the picture. As far as the story, Downey was quoted in the recent GQ profile on the actor saying: My first pitch! I got real excited about it. I was just thinking about Geppetto as »
