Chloe Moretz is apparently in line to join the action thriller The Equalizer.

The Kick-Ass star is in talks to star opposite Denzel Washington in Antoine Fuqua's upcoming big screen version of the 80s TV series, reported Deadline.

Chloe appeared to confirm the role on Twitter, writing: "This is so amazing. Thank you Antoine, Thank you Denzel, and thank you Sony!! :) Cannot wait to start..."

Denzel has long been attached to play the lead role - a former government officer turned investigator, who dedicates his life to helping people in trouble - and Chloe is rumoured to play a young prostitute.

According to Deadline, both Denzel and Antoine were highly "impressed" after the 16-year-old did a reading with Denzel, and the part, which was originally planned for someone in their 20s, will now be re-written for Chloe.

Production on The Equalizer is expected to start later this year, in anticipation for a 2014 release.

Chloe will next reprise her action role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass 2, before starring as Carrie in a remake of the horror classic. She is also attached to star in Lynn Shelton's indie drama Laggies with Keira Knightley and the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Dark Places alongside Charlize Theron.

The skills you acquire will enhance your earning potential. Anyone who pokes fun at your lack of knowledge is projecting their own insecurities onto you.More
