'Equalizer' Director Steps Away from 'Narco Sub'

movieweb.com – Earlier this week, I had the chance to speak with The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua, and towards the end of our chat, the talk naturally drifted towards other projects he's working on. We reported in May that the filmmaker was attached to direct Narco Sub, which the late Tony Scott was once set to direct, that centers on illegal submersible ships used by cartels to smuggle narcotics. 5 years 45 weeks ago via jetli

TIFF Review: Antoine Fuqua’s ‘The Equalizer’ Starring Denzel Washington, Chloe Grace Moretz & Marton Csokas An unfazed tough guy walking away from an massive explosion in slow motion, it’s a tipping point reached long ago—this sequence has become a well-worn cliché in the visual vocabulary of pop culture even beyond cinema. Hell, it’s even been celebrated and mocked by the Lonely Island Guys in song. So it’s perhaps both a testament and symbol of Antoine Fuqua’s fortunate/unfortunate filmmaking modus operandi that the director not only embraces the hackneyed sequence, but also attempts to top it and create the most gloriously excessive walking-away-from-explosions scene ever made.

Denzel Washington Out for Justice in First TV Spot for 'The Equalizer' "There comes a point where you have to help people who can't help themselves." Denzel Washington is back protecting the good people again as The Equalizer, but it doesn't seem to be something he's excited about in this extended TV spot for the action thriller from director Antoine Fuqua. It looks like we're going to get a good threatening monologue from Washington at some point, and that's always great. Plus, if you look carefully, I'm pretty sure Washington smashes a shot glass into someone's eye socket in this TV spot.

Antoine Fuqua Talks ‘Hardcore’ Action and Sequel Potential For ‘The Equalizer’

screenrant.com – Last August we visited the set of Sony’s The Equalizer, a film based on the concept of the ’80s TV show of the same name. For this re-imagining Denzel Washington plays Robert McCall, a seemingly quiet, peaceful and retired man with a mysterious background who’s forced to use his lethal skill set to help those in need. 6 years 7 weeks ago via donnieyen

There's absolutely nothing that's off limits in MGM's ongoing quest to raid its deep vaults for remake material, and for further proof, Deadline reports that the studio is currently mulling a new take on The Magnificent Seven. The sole mitigating factor in our deep disappointment? It could reunite Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua.

Rumor: Denzel Washington Eyed For Lead In Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Magificent Seven’ Remake

fb.indiewire.com – After a somewhat quiet stretch between 2009’s “Brooklyn’s Finest” and last year’s “Olympus Has Fallen," it turns out Antoine Fuqua was simply preparing something of a massive return to the big screen. Suddenly the director has boxing drama “Southpaw” and “Narco Sub” in the pipeline, following his actioner “The Equalizer” that opens in the fall, but one other project—the long-gestating “Magnificent Seven” remake—seems his for the taking as well -- and it may have a familiar face and collaborator attached. 6 years 9 weeks ago via donnieyen
