We brought you news a little while back that a big-screen adaptation of The Equalizer was in the works and that was attached to take the lead. Now we've got a potential director for the vigilante flick, with Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer in early talks to take the reins.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Drive director was originally attached to direct, but jumped ship when he didn't see eye-to-eye with Washington. That has paved the way for Wyatt to jump on board and with cameras set to roll in June, I imagine Sony will be hoping to tie up a deal for the British director as soon as possible.
What do you guys think? Does a Washington/Wyatt collaboration get you excited for The Equalizer? Drop a comment below.
