So far, Denzel Washington was the only actor in the first division Hollywood without sequels or franchise in his IMDb listing. ‘The Equalizer’ changed all that: premiered in 2014, this urban thriller put him in the shoes of Robert McCall, a character originally created for a television series more eighty than the ties-piano. The actor has already advanced during the promotion that McCall is the only character who left him wanting more, the only one whose story did not feel that it had already been fully told. In other words: ‘The Equalizer 2’ was a matter of time.
Details are still sparse, but we know Washington will once again have Antoine Fuqua, one of their fetish directors, commanding revenge fire from behind the cameras. And today it has been confirmed exactly who is going to avenge old McCall this time: Pedro Pascal, the cover of our brand new September issue . We do not believe in the stars, but there are times when you have to wonder if the universe will not have a great plan for all of us.
Pascal has two bombs ready for fall: the second installment of ‘Kingsman’ , in which he plays the brilliantly-named Agent Whiskey, and the third season of ‘Narcos’. The producers of ‘The Equalizer 2’ have confirmed that their character will be decidedly on the other side of the law, then we can expect to be applied a most severe correction at the hands of Denzel in person. If you want to know more about one of the fashionable actors in the new Hollywood, in addition to seeing how they have some of the most wet suits made by the human being, we recommend running to your nearest kiosk.
