Denzel Washington is returning with the third instalment in The Equalizer series and here is everything we know about it so far.
There is a reason why Denzel Washington is considered one of the last greatest stars in Hollywood and the 67-year-old American actor is about to prove himself yet again as an action star in the upcoming third installment of the commercially successful series, The Equalizer, which will be called The Equalizer 3. It has nearly been a decade since the first film was released in 2014, where we first saw Washington’s character Robert McCall take down the Russian mobsters and then exact revenge upon the bad guys who had murdered his friend. The audience has absolutely no clue what the next movie has in store for us all and we are prepared for a generous dose of action and a riveting storyline.
Sony Pictures Entertainment announced the film’s progress back in January 2022 and ever since then Washington’s loyal fans have been counting the days to watch him on the big screen once again. But sadly enough, we have to wait another excruciating year to witness the continuation of Robert McCall’s journey in The Equalizer 3 which is set to hit the theaters on September 1, 2023.
The Equalizer chronicles the story of Robert McCall, a former U.S. Marine who has turned into a DIA agent and now helps people in need using his vast knowledge and a dash of violence to combat thugs. His attempt to lead a quiet life by putting his past behind gets disturbed when he encounters a teenager in the first film who is abused by Russian mobsters. Circumstances force the retired Marine out of his self-imposed exile among the common folks and soon McCall jumps back in action.
The Equalizer 3 boasts of a star-studded cast where Denzel Washington reprises his iconic character Robert McCall. Joining him in this third installment are Gaia Scodellaro, Remo Girone, Eugenio Mastrandrea, David Denman, and Dakota Fanning in unspecified roles. Fanning had previously worked with Washington in Tony Scott's film Man on Fire. Sonia Ammar plays a character called Chiara as well. The Equalizer 3 is directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by Richard Wenk.
At an early stage of the production, there is no information regarding the plot of the next Equalizer movie yet. However, it's safe for us to assume that the protagonist, McCall will be handling yet another new case in this upcoming film which is episodic in nature. The director also revealed that they are going to shoot the film on the Amalfi Coast of Italy along with Sardinia, Sicily, and Naples. Washington, who was last seen in The Tragedy of Macbeth, told Deadline that "he is scheduled to do the third film since the plot has already been written and he is ready to get into shape so he can beat people up again" in this action film. Needless to say, The Equalizer 3 won't disappoint us in the department of action for sure, and we can look forward to Robert McCall facing off against a stronger nemesis. A series of cast photos were released to the media in October, where Denzel Washington can be seen posing with some other cast members at the shooting site.
