CBS has officially greenlit the pilot for the reboot of “The Equalizer,” with Queen Latifah starring in the title role.  The 1985 crime series The Equalizer starred Edward Woodward, and the 2014 film adaptation – as well as its 2018 sequel – both starred Denzel Washington. 

The Queen Latifah-led reboot will act as a “reimagining” of the ’80s original. While the series has only gotten a pilot production commitment so far, the potential for a full series pickup highly possible, according to reports.
