Denzel has been on Broadway doing the play â€œA Raisin in the Sunâ€ so I have not been keeping up with his movie efforts as I should. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised to hear he is teaming up with Antoine Fuqa again to produce a movie based on the television show â€œthe Equalizerâ€Â Â Fuqua and Denzel teamed up in â€˜Training Dayâ€™ so we know the two can do dark, gritty, crime films.Â I suspect this film will be just a bit more intense then the 1980’s show starring Edward Woodward.
Denzelâ€™s character is an ex black ops commando who basically faked his death so he could retire in peace. He comes out of retirement to rescue a girl and has to tango with some badass Russian gangsters in the process.
Here are the movie stills from Columbia Pictures….and the official movie poster.
