Denzel Washington takes on the Russian Mafia in this reboot of Edward Woodward’s sexagenarian vigilante from the 1980s. The last time Washington worked with director Antoine Fuqua, he bagged the Oscar for Training Day (2001).
Other eighties ripe with potential include Jake and the Fatman with Aaron Eckhart and Gerard Deparieu, Merlin with Martin Sheen and Justin Bieber, or BJ and the Bear with Zac Efron. Andy Serkis would play the monkey, obvs.
If any of the above projects materialise in the next five to ten years, I expect a producer’s credit.
The font size in Denz’s copy of “The Old Man and the Sea” must be only massive. Could be double spaced though.
The Equalizer is released on 26th November 2014.
