Meryl Streep, Seth Rogen's 'XMas,' 'Spectre' top Sony Pictures CinemaCon sneak

24 April 2015 1:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months .   December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters.  And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you.  Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

The Equalizer 2 Is Probably Happening

23 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Denzel Washington-fronted action thriller The Equalizer wasn.t exactly a huge runaway hit when it was released last September. It was, however, a solid success, at least enough so that Sony has officially announced it.s getting a sequel, and the star is likely coming back for more. Rumors of a follow up began swirling even before The Equalizer hit theaters last fall and began racking up a better-than-expected box office total. According to Variety those rumors have now come to fruition, as the studio finally decided to go ahead with The Equalizer 2. The first film earned north of $101 million domestically, adding another $90 million from the international market, not a bad haul against a $55 million budget. Antoine Fuqua directed the first film, and while his involvement in the sequel is not mentioned in the article, it does state that star Denzel Washington is "expected" to reprise his role. »

Sony officially announces sequel to The Equalizer

23 April 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Based on the classic 80’s TV show of the same name, The Equalizer big screen remake hit theatres back in September 2014 and grossed approximately $192 million at the box office. Now Sony has officially announced a sequel is in the works.

It’s expected that Denzel Washington – who plays main tough guy Robert McCall – will reprise his role although it’s unknown whether director Antoine Fuqua will return. Fuqua and Washington will next work with each other on the remake of the 1960 classic western The Magnificent Seven which also stars Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil) and has a tentative release for January 2017.

The first movie surprisingly did a lot better than Sony had thought it would and received mostly positive reviews. Rumblings of a possible sequel began to emerge even before the film’s official release so it’s no surprise Sony have decided to cash in. »

Sony Issues Green Light For The Equalizer 2

23 April 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before it pummelled its way onto the silver screen, Sony Pictures ensured its ducks were in a row for The Equalizer. With genre stalwart Denzel Washington on board as the titular vigilante (real name Robert McCall) not to mention Training Day‘s Antoine Fuqua behind the lens, the studio served up a thriller that was as entertaining as it was efficient, checking all the right boxes for an action flick and bringing in an impressive box office haul to the tune of $192 million.

Generic though it may have been, Sony’s adaptation proved to be relatively successful, and now the company is pushing ahead with The Equalizer 2, a direct follow-up to last year’s actioner. That’s according to Collider, who report that the studio has every intention of massaging the property into a franchise with Washington at the helm.

Currently, both Washington and Fuqua have their hands »

'The Equalizer' Gets a Sequel, Denzel Washington Expected to Return

23 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Are you ready for some more equalizingc Are you surec I don't think you are. Well, you better get ready because more equalizing will happen. After making $192 million worldwide on a $55 million budget, THR reports Sony has decided to move forward with a sequel to last year's action thriller The Equalizer by Antoine Fuqua. This feels like the kind of movie that would have made a boatload on home video, so I guess a sequel makes sense. Denzel Washington is expected to return for the sequel, because who else can equalize the way Denzel equalizesc No one. Not even Edward Woodward, who originally played the titular Equalizer, Robert McCall, in the 1980s television series. The film also starred Chloe Grace Moretz, but there is no word about her on this sequel. Full disclosure: I haven't seen The Equalizer, despite hearing okay things about it and the want to see Denzel equalize. »

Denzel Washington & 'The Equalizer' Are Confirmed for a Sequelizer

23 April 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Back in February of 2014, months before The Equalizer had hit theaters, Sony Pictures was said to already be working on a sequel to the action thriller starring Denzel Washington. And at CinemaCon last night, the studio confirmed that the follow-up will indeed be moving forward with the script still coming from the first film's writer, Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2, Mechanic). Washington will be back in the led role, and he'll likely be the only returning cast member from the first film. As for director Antoine Fuqua, it's not clear if he'll be back behind the camera, but we'll see how long this one takes to develop. »

New Projects: ‘Robin Hood’, ‘Battle of the Sexes’, and ‘Russ and Roger Go Beyond’

23 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There must be something fashionable to the idea right now of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Hollywood now has four Robin Hood movies in production, more than anyone really needs, perhaps even the poor. Tuesday Deadline reported that Warner Bros. had “quietly” put a new Robin Hood movie into production, this one being developed by the script writer for the upcoming Aquaman movie Will Beall. Deadline counts three others for it to storm the castle with: a family friendly swashbuckler from Disney called Nottingham & Hood, a Batman Begins style origin story aptly titled Robin Hood: Origins, and one from Sony that’s described as “Fast & Furious meets Mission: Impossible style reinvention of the tale.” With those four incredibly original ideas, anyone think this is the rich stealing from the poor?

Robin Hood isn’t the only Hollywood property currently with competing projects. A few weeks back, »

Sequel to 'The Equalizer' Is in the Works

23 April 2015 6:38 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

It was always expected to be a franchise for Denzel Washington (although, quite frankly, I think a wonderful opportunity was missed with Walter Mosley's Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins crime series, after Washington played the fictional private investigator in "Devil in a Blue Dress"), so it shouldn't be a surprise that Sony is now officially developing a sequel to last year's "The Equalizer" (a film I was underwhelmed by actually, expecting more than what was delivered by director Antoine Fuqua and screenwriter Richard Wenk).  The first film in what will be a vigilante action thriller franchise loosely based on the television series of the same name, »

Denzel Washington To Gear Up For 'The Equalizer' Sequel

23 April 2015 6:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Long before "The Equalizer" hit cinemas last fall, there was already talk of making a sequel. That's just how the Hollywood game is played these days. It's not enough to boot up a vintage TV series into a movie, it has to become a viable franchise too. And while the R-rated "The Equalizer" was mildly received by critics, audiences ate it up to the tune of over $190 million worldwide. So, you know what that means.... Sony has announced that "The Equalizer 2" is in the works, with Denzel Washington expected to reprise his role as the man with a very special set of skills. And...that's about it. No word yet on who's writing the script or if Antoine Fuqua will be back, or Chloe Moretz for that matter. But time well tell. And while "The Equalizer" wasn't particularly good, it was enjoyably dumb in its way, and Washington was »

Wagner Moura joins The Magnificent Seven remake

23 April 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Brazilian star Wagner Moura has landed a plum role in The Magnificent Seven, MGM’s remake of the 1960 film.

Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer) directs the film, which stars his Equalizer actors Denzel Washington and Haley Bennett, as well as Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Luke Grimes (American Sniper) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil).

Moura is set to play Vasquez, one of the titular Seven, and sets MGM up for some decent South American box office, where the actor has a very sizeable fan base. Previously, Moura has featured in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium and the award-winning Elite Squad.

Written by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) and Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective), the story kicks off when a woman (Bennett) hires a disparate group of gunslingers to protect her town from rampaging bandits. The 1960 film, which itself was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Japanese-language film Seven Samurai, »

Denzel Washington's The Equalizer is returning for a sequel

22 April 2015 11:22 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sony Pictures has been busy at CinemaCon this week unveiling its slate of upcoming films, and we now know a sequel for The Equalizer is among them.

The studio company didn't elaborate on the project, but a follow-up comes as no surprise after the first earned $192 million worldwide at the box office last year.

Denzel Washington is expected to return for The Equalizer 2 as vigilante Robert McCall, who single-handedly took on a bunch of violent Russian mobsters last time round.

Marton Csokas played the boss of the group and main antagonist Teddy, while Chloë Grace Moretz also starred as teen victim Teri.

The Equalizer is based on a TV series, which originally aired on CBS between 1985 and 1989.

Also among Sony's big announcements was news of a new animated Spider-Man movie, due out in 2018.

The Equalizer 2 confirmed

22 April 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Denzel Washington will return to play The Equalizer, as Sony confirms The Equalizer 2...

Even before The Equalizer arrived in cinemas last autumn, it was said that Sony Pictures was kicking around ideas for The Equalizer 2. The star and director of the first movie - Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua - are currently hard at work remaking The Magnificent Seven. But after that, it looks like The Equalizer 2 is a definitely goer.

Sony confirmed that it was pressing ahead with the movie at CinemaCon in the Us yesterday. Denzel Washington is certain to reprise the lead role, although it's unclear yet whether Antoine Fuqua will be back too. He skipped the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen to make The Equalizer in the first place, after all. That said, around the time of the first film's release, he did seem keen to explore a sequel.

There's still no release date that we know of, »

22 April 2015 9:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sony has officially announced plans to move forward with a sequel to the Denzel Washington R-rated action thriller "The Equalizer".

Though rumored months ago, it was the $192 million global box office totals and strong home entertainment sales that ultimately has seen the project being greenlit.

Washington is expected to reprise his role as Robert McCall in the follow up, a project which would mark the actor's first sequel.

Antoine Fuqua directed the first film, but it's unknown whether he'll return for the sequel. He and Washington will shortly re-team on MGM's "Magnificent Seven" remake.

Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’ to Get Sequel

22 April 2015 7:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony has officially announced a sequel to the Denzel Washington thriller “The Equalizer.”

Rumors of an “Equalizer” follow-up began months before the R-rated auctioneer opened in September, but it was the film’s strong box office results and home entertainment sales that ultimately pulled the trigger on the second installment.

Washington is expected to reprise his role as vigilante Robert McCall in “Equalizer 2.” Chloe Moretz and Marton Csokas co-starred in the original.

Based on the 1980s TV series, “The Equalizer” earned over $192 million at the global box office last year. It was co-financed by Village Roadshow and debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.

Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) directed the first “Equalizer.” It’s unknown whether he’ll return for the sequel. He and Washington are next re-teaming on MGM’s remake of “Magnificent Seven,” which reunites the duo with “Training Day” actor Ethan Hawke.

Sony also announced a new “Spider-Man »
