The Equalizer screenwriter working on “re-imagining” of Universal Soldier

Richard Wenk, the screenwriter behind The Equalizer, The Expendables 2 and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, has revealed that he’s been working on a “re-imagining” of the cult 1992 action sci-fi Universal Soldier starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren.

“I will say that I’m just finishing up a re-imagining — let’s be clear about this it’s not a remake and it is not a redo — but it is a re-imagining of a movie called Universal Soldier,” Wenk tells Discussing Film. “Very much like The Equalizer, it’s the title that inspired me and not the movies…I’m just about to finish (the script) and turn it in this week.”

Directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day), Universal Soldier saw Van Damme and Lundgren as two U.S. soldiers killed in Vietnam, who are resurrected decades later as part of the secret military program, UniSol, to create an elite counter-terrorism unit.
