Although Sony Pictures changed a lot of the movies on its release schedule on Friday, Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer 3 is still scheduled to open on September 1.
The movie is being hailed as Denzel Washington's final outing as Robert McCall, the role he played in both the 2014 film with Pedro Pascal and Chloe Grace Moretz and its 2018 sequel with Ashton Sanders and Marton Csokas.
Denzel said about Robert McCall, "I don’t want to say he’s found happiness, and I don’t want to give it all away, but he meets someone lovely, he’s in a lovely town and he seems to be at peace. That seems to be a good place to stop."
Fuqua added, "This is it. Robert McCall, the working-man hero, at some point he’s got to walk away from it. At some point, someone else has to pick up the ball and serve justice. He’s served his justice. He’s in a foreign place, [and] he’s trying to find a home, find a place in the world. That’s really what’s important."
