Denzel Washington is regarded as one of the most talented actors working today in Hollywood and his action movie franchise The Equalizer is popular with the fans. The actor has now let out a few details about a third instalment in the franchise.
During the press tour of his latest release The Tragedy of Macbeth, Washington confirmed to BlackFilmandTv.com, that a third movie in the franchise is indeed in the works and will start filming some time this year and that Antoine Fuqua is set to direct it.
The actor did not share an exact date when the production for the movie will start and plot details and other information about the movie are currently not available. But with production set to start this year, more information about the cast and crew can be expected in the coming months.
The Equalizer is based on the 1980’s series of the same name and the first movie starring Washington came out in 2014. Winning praise from both fans and critics, the movie also collected big money at the box office. The 2018 sequel was not as well received, but did well at the box office.
The first movie saw Washington play former U.S. Marine turned DIA intelligence officer Robert McCall, who returns to action in order to protect a young woman from the Russian mafia.
Both movies are directed by Faqua, who will return to working with Washington in the third instalment. Since Equalizer 2, Faqua has helmed Infinite and The Guilty while Washington was seen in The Little Things and Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth.
