"The writers came up with a wonderful take, a more personal take..." - hmv.com talks The Equalizer 2 with Denzel Washington & Antoine Fuqua
Readers of a certain vintage might remember the CBS TV show The Equalizer, starring Edward Woodward as a retired intelligence agent with a mysterious past who used his skills to bring his own brand of rough justice to innocent crime victims trapped in dangerous situations. Younger readers may just remember the 2014 reboot starring Denzel Washington, which saw the two-time Oscar winner revive the character in a big screen adaptation directed by Antione Fuqua.
This week Denzel returns to reprise the role of Robert McCall, and this time it gets personal as one of his closest friends is killed in the course of investigating an apparent murder-suicide in Brussels, sending McCall on a mission to find her killers and exact his revenge.
Fuqua returns to the director's chair for the sequel, which also stars Pedro Pascal, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo. With The Equalizer 2 arriving on DVD shelves on Monday (December 10th), we caught up with Denzel and Antione for a chat about their new movie.
