An acting career that has spanned 5 decades has never seen Denzel Washington return top make a sequel, with it now looking as though The Equalizer 2 will be his first.

The Equalizer hit cinemas last year bring in $192 million at the worldwide box office  on a mere $55 million budget.

Now we learn, and this isn’t a surprise, that Denzel Washington is all but certain to return for the film (well, there isn’t much of one without him really). He’s currently making The Magnificent Seven with Fuqua, although it’s unclear if the director himself will be back. Fuqua, after all, passed on the sequel to one of his other hits Olympus Has Fallen.

Columbia Pictures has announced that The Equalizer 2 will arrive in theaters on September 29, 2017. That date falls close to the three-year anniversary of the first film and gives the studio a solid tentpole for that fall season.

It had been planned prior to the release of the first movie that a sequel was in the works, and it’s reassuring that the studio already has its eyes on a release date. There’s no indication what the sequel’s story will be yet, but the first film’s conclusion left the door wide open for Washington’s character to continue helping people in need. This would allow each film to serve as a standalone adventure and keep the franchise alive with only Washington as the continuation between movies.

More on this as we have it.
