Denzel Washington will return as Robert McCall in The Equalizer 3, though Antoine Fuqua’s involvement is still yet to be confirmed.
Several years since its launch, 2014’s The Equalizer remains just as watchable as when it first released. Whilst not quite its, ahem, ‘equal’, 2018’s The Equalizer 2 wasn’t half-bad either. A trilogy-closer seemed inevitable, but things were quiet for quite some time until January of this year when star Denzel Washington, whilst on the press rounds for The Tragedy of Macbeth, revealed that another film was in the works. Not only that, but it’s currently due a cinema release in September 2023.
So, fresh from playing one rather violent Mac, Washington will return to portray another. This time it’s Robert McCall, a vigilante who uses his fists (and all kinds of other stuff too) to right wrongs. The two films in the series so far have followed McCall, a former marine and DIA operative who uses his unique and fearsome skills set to operate as an undercover operative for justice.
However, we don’t yet know if the third film in the series will be directed by Antoine Fuqua, who the actor previously worked with on Training Day and both of The Equalizer films. Fuqua’s involvement isn’t yet confirmed, and it’s also unclear as to whether Richard Wenk, who penned the first two movies, has scripted the third. We do know that the film will be getting an IMAX release though.
As we hear more, including the confirmation of who’ll be in the director’s chair, you can be sure we’ll let you know.
