After he’s done Equalizing, Denzel Washington looks to head into sci-fic territory with the lead role in “Shovel Ready”, an adaptation of an unreleased novel by New York Times Magazine culture editor Adam Sternbergh.

Deadline hints of a “Man on Fire meets The Matrix”-like flick, with a futuristic killer playing involuntary bodyguard to a young girl.

In a bombed-out, near future New York City where most of the population escapes reality by tapping into a digital fantasy world, a contract killer is hired to kill the daughter of a powerful, maniacal evangelist. Ultimately, the killer becomes the girl’s protector.

Washington’s got “The Equalizer” to shoot first.
