Sony is pretty confident about The Equalizer. It doesn’t arrive in cinemas until September in the US (and October 10th in the UK), but they’re already developing a sequel.
Of course the sequel is reliant on the first movie being a success. Now we can get a proper feel for the movie with a trailer.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Starring Denzel Washington, it tells the story of a former black ops commando who faked his death and is now living a quiet life and returns to action to rescue a prostitute from evil pimps; his actions cause the Russian mob to send rogue CIA agents to kill him; he battles back against overwhelming odds, defeating them and becoming “The Equalizer.”’
Richard Wenk (16 Blocks) wrote the screenplay, based on the hit TV series The Equalizer, which ran for four seasons between 1985 and 1989.
