Denzel Washington has acted on film for over 40 years, and in that time he’s only reprised the same character more than once. The Malcolm X actor starred as Robert McCall in 2014’s The Equalizer and returned to the role in the sequel released four years later. It’s been years since we heard an update about the possibility of The Equalizer 3 happening, but now Washington has revealed that he’s preparing to work on the threequel.
Having recently starred in The Tragedy of Macbeth and directed Michael B. Jordan in A Journal for Jordan, Denzel Washington is getting ready to tackle The Equalizer 3, which could end up being his next movie. Here’s what Washington told Collider about what his professional plans are for 2022:
That’s already welcome news for people who’ve been waiting to learn if The Equalizer 3 will actually happen, but it gets even better. Collider’s sources say that Antoine Fuqua, who directed the first two Equalizer movies, is in talks to direct the third installment, and there aren’t expected to be “any hold-ups.” Assuming Fuqua does work out a deal, The Equalizer 3 will be his follow-up to last year’s The Guilty, which starred Jake Gyllenhaal.
More to come…
