Crowe is The Equalizer
The Gladiator star has signed up to tackle a new film adaptation of the 1980s action series, which starred Woodward as an ageing New York vigilante with a mysterious past who solves problems and settle scores.
The movie has been in development since 2005, but now looks set to finally move forward with Crowe on board, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The film is the latest in a series of 1980s remakes which have graced the big screen recently, including The A-Team and The Karate Kid.
