Denzel Washington will be returning for his first-ever sequel, The Equalizer 2.
In the first film, Robert McCall (Denzel Washington), a man of mysterious origin who believes he has put the past behind him, dedicates himself to creating a quiet new life. However, when he meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teenager who has been manhandled by violent Russian mobsters, he simply cannot walk away. With his set of formidable skills, McCall comes out of self-imposed retirement and emerges as an avenging angel, ready to take down anyone who brutalizes the helpless.
Director Antoine Fuqua is also set to return. This will be the fourth film Denzel and Fuqua will team up for. The first installment grossed over $200 million during its theatrical release.
The Equalizer 2 will be in theaters July 20, 2018.
