'The Equalizer 2' to Kick Off Filming September 2017
Antoine Fuqua's sequel to The Equalizer, which starred Denzel Washington, will shoot beginning September of next year. It will reunite the duo, who have also collaborated on the star-studded remake of The Magnificent Seven, out now.
Washington was a sure thing for the follow-up, but Fuqua's role was less sealed initially. The film has a release date of September 29, 2017, which is obviously set for a push back of at least a year.
According to producer Todd Black, a script has been written. "Equalizer 2 will start shooting in September of next year, maybe earlier depending on another movie that we’re shooting with Denzel before that. We’re going to do a little bit more work and we’re going to go into casting right after that for his nemesis."
