Antoine Fuqua Envisions Denzel Washington In His Remake Of This Iconic Movie

With the release of The Equalizer 2 in theaters, director Antoine Fuqua has now expressed interest in another sequel/remake for the Denzel Washington-fronted action franchise.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fuqua talked about a potential third film in The Equalizer franchise.

“I’m looking forward to The Equalizer 3, if that happens. I would love for it to take place internationally, I think Denzel would be a great James Bond-type character,” Fuqua said. “Denzel and I talk about a lot of different things. I’ve got some things I’m developing and roles I’d like him to play.”

In another interesting tidbit of information, Fuqua also said he envisions Denzel Washington in his adaptation of Scarface. “My dream is for him to be Scarface. He laughs sometimes and he kind of goes, ‘Al Pacino did a great job! I don’t want to do that.’ I’m nudging him,” Fuqua said. “I’m trying to nudge him into doing it.”
