Queen Latifah will play “The Equalizer” in a TV reboot that has a pilot commitment from CBS. The 49-year-old Latifah will take on the role of the highly trained vigilante who seeks justice for those who can’t. The role was portrayed by Edward Woodward in the 1985-89 show and by Denzel Washington in the 2014 and 2018 movie versions.
Latifah is also executive producing the reboot, along with Debra Martin Chase. Andrew Marlowe and Terri Miller will serve as show runners.
