The Equalizer Gets Writers

The Equalizer Gets The Writers -

The big screen adaptation of the 80's TV show, The Equalizer, now has a director and writers on board. Crime novel writer Michael Connelly and Terrill Lee Lankford are going to pen the script, and Paul McGuigan is the director. That's some good news. McGuigan directed Lucky Number Slevin, which I liked, and Connelly should come up with a good script. The best thing here is that the people behind the flick don't have anything to do with comedy. If they were going to treat this as yet another 80's show remake into a comedy, I would not have been happy. The Equalizer was a great show - the movie should be dark and gritty crime drama.

Now, who's going to play The Equalizer? I still think it should be Clive Owen...

I'm always on board with more Clive Owen.
