Queen Latifah is set to play in the CBS reboot from the 1980’s crime drama series The Equalizer.
The multi-award-winning singer and actress will star in, and executive produces the series. Castle creator Andrew Marlowe and executive producer Terri Miller created the project. The network announced it officially gave the series a pilot production commitment.
The crime series ‘The Equalizer’ ran from 1985-89. Edward Woodard played the actor in the original series. He was a retired intelligence operative that used his training to help people out of difficult situations. The series also made it to the big screen with two feature films starring Denzel Washington.
The new series will stay close to the original with a slight change. Queen Latifah plays the role of an ambiguous woman who uses her extensive skills to help motivate people.
