Nightcrawler pretty much guaranteed our excitement for whatever Dan Gilroy does next. As it turns out, we won’t have to wait much longer to see what that is, as the director of the acclaimed 2014 thriller is developing a new legal drama, with Denzel Washington reportedly circling the lead role — which already makes this sound like one heck of a film experience.

Turn back the clock to 2010, and the hottest ticket on Broadway is a revival of August Wilson’s Pulitzer-winning play Fences, a poignant and daring meditation on race relations in America with a focus on the hardships of the black experience. It has all the necessary qualifications for a bona fide Broadway smash: a handsome pedigree of awards and acclaim (the production took the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play in 2010), urgent social significance, and some Hollywood talent slumming it on the boards in between film projects. Denzel Washington and Viola Davis starred as the married couple at the heart of Fences, winning raves and a Tony apiece, and created a rare sensation that dazzled audiences for thirteen weeks and then vanished.

The trend of major movies rebooting as TV series seems to have fallen behind the current crop of revivals, but we may yet have a late entry into the former, one King Kong has nothing on.

The Equalizer is sort of the ultimate action movie for dads — the big climactic scene takes place in a home improvement store, with Denzel Washington using tools in ways Tim Taylor never could have imagined in his darkest moments. And if you’re itching to see Washington kick more bad guy butt, you’ll get your chance to do so…in 2017.

Director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven (which seems to have dropped the “the” because it’s 2015 and no one has time for that) has added another actor you really like to its line-up of stars. Ethan Hawke, fresh off an Oscar nomination for Boyhood, has joined Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, and Haley Bennett in the remake of the western classic, which follows a team of gunfighters who team up to protect a small Mexican town from bandits.

As Star-Lord, the quipping, fighting leader of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ Chris Pratt already has plenty of experience playing the member of outlaws and vigilantes who become an unlikely bunch of heroes.
