Almost four years have passed sinceDenzel Washingtonhit theaters with the story of ex-marine and special agent turned self-righteous mercenary Robert McCall for ‘The Equalizer 2‘. Since then, there has been little talk of a third film, at least until Washington has revealed in an interview with Collider that the pieces are falling into place, with the directorAntoine Fuquanegotiating his return to directing and the script already under construction.
“They’ve written the third Equalizer movie, so I’m ready to do it.”, dice Washington. “So I have to get in shape and start beating people up again.”. The actor’s words suggest that the new installment of’The Equalizer: El protector‘it could be his next project after the drama’Macbeth‘ and the imminent ‘small details‘.
