From The, 'Huh? Really?' File: Nicolas Winding Refn In Negotiations For THE EQUALIZER
You can add one more to the mix, Deadline reporting that Refn is entering negotiations to direct Denzel Washington in a big screen version of 1980s television series The Equalizer, which I watched quite a lot of when it was on the air. Production is currently scheduled to begin in spring of 2013, which means everything else on the Refn slate will most likely be bumped back a notch to make space. It was already a given that any Equalizer movie would be quite different from the television series - what with Denzel not being an aging, white, British man, for one thing - but now it has a strong possibility of being both different and good.
