Denzel Washington is set to star in The Equalizer movie. It looks as if Drive's Nicolas Winding Refn might direct...

It's been a few months now since news broke of a big screen take on the 1980s TV show, The Equalizer. Since then, Denzel Washington has become attached to the film to star, and a screenplay has been put together by Richard Wenk. All that was seemingly needed was a director to get the film out of the gates.

That director, as it turns out, may well be Nicolas Winding Refn. Winding Refn is, according to Variety, in receipt of an offer to direct The Equalizer. Negotiations are expected to begin shortly.

Winding Refn, who helmed the wonderful Drive of course, is currently finishing off his new project, the thriller Only God Forgives. We'll let you know if and when he's confirmed for The Equalizer.
