The Weinstein's Equalize
by Dan Chant

Film Focus, December 1, 2005

The seemingly omnipresent Weinstein Company has acquired the rights to develop and produce a feature film based on the classic original television series, The Equalizer, from the original creators, Michael Sloan and Richard Lindheim. The series told the tale of former Secret Service Agent, Robert McCall, puts an advertisement in the newspaper that reads; "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call The Equalizer," in an effort to atone for the sins of his past.

Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, made the announcement today and revealed that Mace Neufeld, Tony Eldridge and Michael Sloan will serve as producers on the film. Eric Robinson and Brenden Deneen will oversee production on behalf of The Company. No director or cast has currently been attached to the fetal project.

Harvey Weinstein also stated that, "'The Equalizer' was one of my favorite TV series in the 1980's because the writing was always smart and very unpredictable. I am really excited about developing and producing this film."

Michael Sloan also chimed in with his two-pennies worth, stating, "Tony Eldridge and I are thrilled to be working with two legendary filmmakers like Harvey Weinstein and Mace Neufeld. 'The Equalizer' is a character we believe will resonate strongly with today's audience; a man of style and compassion using skills as an ex-covert agent to help ordinary people in trouble."

Mace Neufeld offered the final words of the day saying that, "I have been looking for a big franchise series to follow-up on my Tom Clancy films. 'The Equalizer' perfectly fills the bill."

The original hit television drama series, The Equalizer, starred Edward Woodward and Robert Lansing and aired from 1985 to 1989.
