The Equalizer 2 (sometimes promoted as The Equalizer II/EQ2) is an upcoming American thriller film directed by Antoine Fuqua. It is a sequel to the 2014 film The Equalizer, based on the TV series of the same name. The film stars Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Ashton Sanders, Melissa Leo, and Bill Pullman, and follows retired CIA agent Robert McCall as he sets out on a path of revenge after one of his friends is killed.
Talks of an Equalizer sequel began seven months prior to the release of the first film in 2014. The film was officially announced in April 2015 with Washington set to reprise his role and in September 2016 Fuqua confirmed he would return to direct. Filming began in September 2017, and took place in Boston, as well as several other areas around Massachusetts and Istanbul, Turkey. It marks the first time Denzel Washington has ever starred in a sequel to one of his films.
