Paul Haggis may bring his unique insights into racial tension to The Equalizer

The big-screen version of the Edward Woodward-starring ‘80s vigilante series The Equalizer continues to be a thing, with The Hollywood Reporter now saying that director Paul Haggis is currently negotiating to take over as director.
