Equalizer Movie in Development

Variety says '80s TV show "The Equalizer" is getting a big-screen adaptation.

The show followed an ex-spy (Edward Woodward) who put his unique talents to use helping needy folks find justice. People reached The Equalizer via his pithy Yellow Pages advertisement: "Got a problem? Need help? Odds against you? Call The Equalizer." You'll be seeing this text a lot -- it's bound to be the tagline on every single piece of "Equalizer" marketing material.

Casting and a production schedule haven't been announced. -- Mac Slocum
