The Man on Fire actor, who has spent more than three decades in the film industry is renown for both his critically acclaimed and blockbuster movies. He has won two Academy Awards till date.

To his credit, in all these years of acting, this is the first time that Washington has been part of a sequel to any movie.

Most actors take roles in sequels and franchises as it is usually less risky than doing a brand new project, and gives them more option to experiment in the future.

However, the 63-year-old actor's movie choices and their consequent success at the box office has kept him out of the franchise game until now.

The new movie is a sequel to the sleeper hit The Equalizer, which was released in 2014, and performed much more than was initially expected.

It grossed over $100 million in the domestic market itself, making it a viable source for a sequel.

The movie was about a retired government employee, who starts to single-handedly fight back against organized crime syndicates, using household items like hammers.

The Equalizer 2

 is set to release in theatres on July 20, 2018.
