Denzel Washington Cast as Robert McCall in Film Adaptation of The Equalizer

The Equalizer

Sony Pictures is moving forward with its theatrical film adaptation of the late 1980s television crime drama The Equalizer with Denzel Washington in the role of ex-agent Robert McCall, who offers his services to those who cannot — for whatever reason — seek legitimate protection from the law.

There are a couple of … not necessarily problems, but issues … with this whole project. First, do we really need another film remake of a television series? And second, does Denzel Washington, whose character roles, even in thrillers, are frequently more cerebral-inclined than action-oriented, fit our mental image of "The Equalizer"? What do you think?
