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.
