Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman are set to return as Susan and Brian Plummer in the upcoming sequel to “The Equalizer” at Sony Pictures and Village Roadshow.
The pair appeared in the first film as friends of Denzel Washington’s Robert McCall during his counter-terrorism days. They join Pedro Pascal who hopped onboard the project this week as the villain.
In the first, Washington’s McCall is a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters.
Filming is slated to begin soon ahead of a September 14th 2018 release.
