Equalizer 2: Denzel Washington Retruns, Fighting Villain Played by edro Pascal

Pedro Pascal will play the villain in Sony and Escape Artists’ “The Equalizer 2,” starring Denzel Washington.

Antoine Fuqua is returning to direct. Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Washington, Steve Tisch, Alex Siskin, Michael Sloan, Tony Eldridge and Mace Neufeld are producing.

Plot details are currently scarce, other than that Washington will reprise his role as Robert McCall, a former special ops agent who now helps those who can’t defend themselves. Details on Pascal’s character are unknown.

The Equalizer

The picture bows on Sept. 14, 2018. The movie is Washington’s first sequel, after the first film was a hit, grossing $100 million domestically.

Based on 1970s TV Series

Based on the 1970s TV series, “The Equalizer” followed McCall as a simple man who worked at a Home Depot-style store and kept a quiet life. His secret past, however, was brought to light when he took on a Russian syndicate to defend a young girl who was badly beaten by her pimps, who worked for the mob.

This marks the first time Washington has ever reprised a character in his storied career. “The Equalizer 2” is such a priority for Washington that Fuqua left as director of the Scarface reboot at Universal to focus on the film.

It also marks a big get for Pascal, who has begun to build a busy career after breaking out as Prince Oberyn in Season 4 of “Game of Thrones.” He has continued to build a fan base with Netflix’s “Narcos” while slowly adding major films to his resume.

Along with Season 3 of “Narcos,” Pascal can next be seen in “Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle,” which opens next month and also stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and Channing Tatum.
