Crash writer/director to pen The Equalizer

Paul Haggis is in talks to pen a movie adaptation of TV show The Equalizer.

If confirmed, the Crash writer/director would reunite Haggis with star Russell Crowe after the pair worked together on upcoming thriller The Next Three Days.

The original CBS Equalizer series centred on a secret agent who helped new clients as a vigilante.

A director for the project has not yet been announced
