Denzel Washington to hunt a serial killer again for Little Things

Denzel Washington The Equalizer

Denzel Washington has brought down a lot of bad guys over the course of his career - for example, he helped stop a serial killer in THE BONE COLLECTOR, where he played a character who may now be getting his own TV show without Washington's involvement. Now Washington is in talks to go up against another killer in the Warner Bros. thriller LITTLE THINGS.

THE BLIND SIDE writer/director John Lee Hancock, whose latest film THE HIGHWAYMEN (starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson as police officers on the trail of Bonnie and Clyde) will be reaching Netflix at the end of the month, is writing the screenplay for LITTLE THINGS. Hancock may end up directing the film as well.

Washington will be playing a

burned-out Kern County deputy sheriff named Deke, who teams with a crack LASD detective, Baxter, to reel in a wily serial killer. Deke’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past.

Sounds like we have a case of mismatched partners here, so this is both a buddy cop movie and a serial killer thriller. Sign me up!

Warner Bros. is hoping to get LITTLE THINGS into production by this summer.
