The Equalizer 2 will reunite director Antoine Fuqua, screenwriter Richard Wenk and star Denzel Washington, who is once again portraying retired black ops agent Robert McCall, played by Edward Woodward in the original TV series. Melissa Leo and Bill Pullman return to portray McCall’s friends and former CIA agents Susan and Brian Plummer, alongside Pedro Pascal (Narcos), and Ashton Sanders (Moonlight).
