Russell Crowe, Paul Haggis eyeing ‘Equalizer’ gig

HollywoodNews.com: CBS’ ‘80s metropolitan vigilante TV series “The Equalizer” is getting a big-screen makeover by “Crash” director Paul Haggis. Project reteams Haggis with Russell Crowe who has been linked to “Equalizer” for some time.

Haggis recently finished directing Crowe in “The Next Three Days” which is set to bow in November. The “Days” director hasn’t been set to direct, only write the “Equalizer” script at this point in time.

Hollywood Reporter recaps the plot: “The original CBS series concerned the exploits of a former secret agent turned vigilante who could be hired to right wrongs.”

Edward Woodward played the famed protagonist Robert McCall, who had a ‘Godfather’ deal with his clients: He would never charge them, however, they needed to promise him that they’d repay him should he ever call with a favor.

What is holding Haggis back from the helmer’s chair is that he’s committed to direct the defunct United Artists feature, “Ranger’s Apprentice” which he co-wrote. Project went in limbo due to MGM’s financial struggles.
