The Equalizer is sort of the ultimate action movie for dads — the big climactic scene takes place in a home improvement store, with Denzel Washington using tools in ways Tim Taylor never could have imagined in his darkest moments. And if you’re itching to see Washington kick more bad guy butt, you’ll get your chance to do so…in 2017.

First of all, Antoine Fuqua – who directed ‘The Equalizer’ (which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival) and directed Washington in his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Training Day’ – is the definition of the word “character.” When you enter a hotel room to interview Fuqua, personality is just bouncing off of the walls.
We've been tracking the progress of 'The Equalizer' for some time now, and while the Denzel Washington-led film has yet to hit theaters, word is that early screenings are testing overwhelmingly positive. In fact, work has already begun to follow up the new film, directed by longtime Washington pal Antoine Fuqua, with 'The Equalizer 2.'
