Denzel Washington is in talks to revamp cult TV crimefighting show The Equalizer on the big screen.
Sony Pictures revealed that it wants the actor for the project in an announcement that it has extended its first-look deal with production company Escape Artists.
The adaptation of the '80s television show was one of the projects listed as being developed between the two companies.
"The project is being developed with Denzel Washington in mind to star and Alex Siskind is partnered with Escape Artists to produce," said Sony.
The Equalizer, which starred Edward Woodward as a secret-agent-turned-vigilante, initially ran on CBS for four seasons between September 1985 and August 1989.
