Washington is expected to reprise his role as vigilante Robert McCall in “Equalizer 2.” Chloe Grace Moretz and Marton Csokas co-starred in the original, based on the 1980s TV series of the same name.

Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) directed the first “Equalizer.” It was produced by Escape Artists,  co-financed by Village Roadshow and debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.

“The Equalizer 2” is the first film dated for Sept. 29, 2017.
