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. A new report says Antoine Fuqua and Jerry Bruckheimer are developing a Training Day TV series eyed for one of the major networks, albeit with a casting twist.

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. In other words, he’s already kind of made ‘The Magnificent Seven’ in outer space, so why not make the real thing?

“If this were a TV show, I’d watch it every single week.” These were the words I spoke right after watching Antoine Fuqua’s theatrical version of ‘The Equalizer,’ which is kind of a dumb thing to say considering that ‘The Equalizer’ was a TV show. Though, this updated version of ‘The Equalizer’ bears little resemblance to the mid-‘80s version, even though it kind of has everything to do with it.

First of all, Antoine Fuqua – who directed ‘The Equalizer’ (which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival) and directed Washington in his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Training Day’ – is the definition of the word “character.” When you enter a hotel room to interview Fuqua, personality is just bouncing off of the walls.

New 'The Equalizer' Trailer: Denzel Washington Talks About Ernest Hemingway, Kills Everyone

The new trailer for 'The Equalizer' essentially doubles down on what the other trailers have only hinted at: this movie is all about taking weird pleasure in watching a remarkably calm Denzel Washington kill off the Russian mob. It looks nothing like the TV show it's supposedly based on, but it does look like it'll fall right in line with the bulk of Washington's modern filmography. Once again, he plays the coolest guy in the room and once again, he's a good enough actor to make it all look oh-so-easy.

The first TV spot for 'The Equalizer' is here, featuring Denzel Washington going pretty hard on some really crooked guys and a brand new song from Eminem and Sia. And in the grand tradition of Denzel Washington films, it looks like you do not want to get on his bad side, ever.

Denzel Washington returns to action in '‘The Equalizer' trailer, though he's a little slower than he used to be. Instead of taking out a room full of criminals in sixteen seconds it takes him nearly twenty. Maybe it's time to retire.

1960 classic 'The Magnificent Seven' is a film built entirely on a foundation of star power, and the impending remake is looking to follow suit. New reports reveal that the one and only Denzel Washington is being sought for the film, and we won't lie, there are few people we'd rather see kick ass in the old West than him.
