The Equalizer 2: It's not due out in theaters until September 26, but The Equalizer has already earned a sequel. Reportedly, the film has been "testing through the roof" at sneak advance screenings, and so Sony has brought back writer Richard Wenkman to pen the sequel. Denzel Washington stars as a retired intelligence officer who uses his skills to help a prostitute, played by Chloe Grace Moretz. The film is based on the late 1980s CBS TV show with Edward Woodward.

Next month, Beatty turns 77. [Deadline]
