Sony has officially announced plans to move forward with a sequel to the Denzel Washington R-rated action thriller “The Equalizer”.
Though rumored months ago, it was the $192 million global box office totals and strong home entertainment sales that ultimately has seen the project being greenlit.
Washington is expected to reprise his role as Robert McCall in the follow up, a project which would mark the actor’s first sequel.
Antoine Fuqua directed the first film, but it’s unknown whether he’ll return for the sequel. He and Washington will shortly re-team on MGM’s “Magnificent Seven” remake.
