As The Equalizer 3 lands in cinemas this week, director Antoine Fuqua has been chatting about a potential prequel.
Denzel Washington is about to pummel a plethora of problematic people for the third time in The Equalizer 3. Reuniting the core team of Washington, director Antoine Fuqua and screenwriter Richard Wenk, the third instalment also sees Washington reunite with his Man On Fire co-star Dakota Fanning.
In an interview with NME, as reported by Deadline, Fuqua discussed the possibility of de-aging Washington for a prequel, saying “especially now with the new technology and the AI and all of that kind of stuff… Is there a story to be told about how [McCall] became this person — the younger version? I’ve had that conversation with Richard Wenk quite a bit.”
Fuqua remained cautious, going on to clarify “it’s all so fresh and new, I’m still watching the technology. I’ve watched Harrison Ford’s film (Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny) and I know there’s other movies coming out… And I’m hearing the technology is getting better and better and better. So I’m kind of watching it to see where it goes.”
The idea has not yet been put to Washington.
The Equalizer 3 is released in UK cinemas on the 30th August.
