Odds Against You? Call "The Equalizer"

Canadian writer Paul Haggis ("Casino Royale") is in current negotiations to script a feature re-boot of the CBS TV series "The Equalizer", for star Russell Crowe. Crowe will produce with Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch, Tony Eldridge, Mace Neufeld, Alex Siskin and the original series co-creator Michael Sloan.

"The Equalizer" aired on CBS between 1985 and 1989, starring British actor Edward Woodward as 'Robert McCall', a former secret agent with a mysterious past, mixing ingredients from popular spy films and private investigator shows with violent realism. McCall tries to make up for his 'past sins', by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter vigilante. People could find him through a newspaper ad that read "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer".

Assisted by a group of contacts from his spying days, McCall stalks the streets of New York City, visiting his style of 'justice' against criminals.
