The Equalizer On To Do List For Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes Rupert Wyatt

He won’t be returning for the sequel to his Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but Rupert Wyatt is lining up plenty of other interesting projects.

As well his pulpy adventure pic Agent 13, in development with Charlize Theron, he also has a big-screen version of Sebastian Faulks‘ World War I drama Bird Song on the cards. This was filmed for the BBC with Eddie Redmayne last year, but there’s always room for an American funded, studio take, right? Wyatt’s movie will see Nicholas Hoult in the lead role.

And there’s now also The Equalizer with Denzel Washington.

Deadline say that the film is only “loosely based” on the original TV series, which is possibly a good thing. I like Edward Woodward as much as the next man but that show really wasn’t his finest hour.

The report also comments on how modestly budgeted the picture will be with Denzel Washington said to be set for a $20 million payout, the total budget coming to just $50 million. Yeah, that’s modest these days.

Wyatt’s other projects may prevent him from taking on this gig, but it’s being worked out and if the studios can shake hands and make friends, it should be within reach.
