Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn has signed to direct Denzel Washington in The Equalizer, an action film loosely based on the eighties TV series of the same name. The film, which will begin shooting next spring, will center around Washington's character, a former government spy who now uses his powers to help the downtrodden. Either way, hope he likes surprisingly graphic violence and not talking that much.
