The Equalizer was a TV series that ran from 1985-1989. It starred Edward Woodward, who played Robert McCall, a retired intelligence agent who becomes a private detective who uses his contacts to help a host of characters each week. In the new Equalizer ($TBA) Denzel Washington plays McCall a former black ops commando who faked his death to go off the grid. He comes out of hiding to help Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz) take on some ultra violent Russian gangsters. Based on the trailer this version looks pretty badass. This looks like it might be a good vehicle for Denzel, similar to what the Bourne Identity did for Matt Daemon.
