There had to be thoughts that the The Equalizer 2 would happen as soon as Denzel Washington was cast as the dark hero who makes wrongs right in Boston for those who need his help.
The Sony film had franchise for the two-time Oscar winner written all over it. Plus, the film would reunite him with the director of Training Day who brought him one of those Oscars -- Antoine Fuqua.
Then, the film debuted and banked a global gross of $200 million off of a $55 million budget.
During Sony’s CinemaCon presentation they made the announcement that The Equalizer 2 is happening. Not much else was added in terms of the plot, but after seeing Washington take on the Russian mob in the first film, we cannot wait to see who gets his brand of justice in the follow-up.
First up for Fuqua and Washington? The remake of The Magnificent Seven!
