Guess What, There's This Now: Russell Crowe Starring in 'Equalizer' Remake

Cashing in on all the constant thought we donate to the late-'80s CBS series The Equalizer, a collective of "high-level producers" are reportedly working on bringing a remake of the show to screens with Russell Crowe committed to taking the role now haunted by Edward Woodward. Here's Wikipedia's overview of the show, which I've edited for purposes of Crowe accuracy:

The series movie stars British actor Edward Woodward Australian actor Russell Crowe as Robert McCall, a former secret agent of an unnamed organization, which was often referred to simply as "The Agency" or "The Company", who tries to atone for past sins by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter (often literally), a protector, and an investigator. People in need find him through a newspaper ad: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer."

No studios have yet officially picked up the project, but with that "'80s remake" blood in the water, I can't imagine we'll be long to see Crowe equalize some shit. Then again, both Robin Hood and A-Team underperformed at the box office, so maybe we'd better just get some prep work done on The Karate Kid 3.
