Dakota Fanning is set to reunite with Denzel Washington in The Equalizer 3, per Deadline. The pair first starred together in the 2004 action film Man on Fire.
Washington first starred as former CIA operative Robert McCall in Fuqua’s 2014 The Equalizer and reprised the role in 2018 for The Equalizer 2, again directed by Fuqua.
The franchise is based on the 1980s TV series where McCall (Edward Woodward) put his services out to help those who could not help themselves by acting as an investigator and protector for those in danger.
Along with Fanning, The Equalizer 3 will also reunite Washington with Antione Fuqua, who directed the first two entries in the franchise, as well as The Equalizer screenwriter Richard Wenk.
The Equalizer 3 will begin production later this year for a September 1st, 2023 release.
