The Equalizer 2 is to start filming sometime next year.

That’s from the mouth of producer Todd Black who has been making the rounds for the release of The Magnificent Seven. The rebooted western is directed by the same man who helmed the first Equalizer movie – Antoine Fuqua.

Speaking to Collider, Black was asked the status of a sequel to the Equalizer, which starred Denzel Washington in the lead role.

The script is done,” he said. “We start shooting right after Labor Day, maybe right before Labor Day depending on Denzel’s schedule. So 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.

Black also confirmed that Antoine Fuqua would be back in the directors chair with a script by the man behind the first film, Richard Wenk.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
