Denzel Washington Reunited With Dakota Fanning For The Equalizer 3, And He Had A Super Funny Response About It While On Set


Equalizer fans got a nice treat as Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning reunited for The Equalizer 3, two decades after first co-starring in Man on Fire. The reunion paid off as the threequel posted strong opening weekend numbers over Labor Day weekend. Now, amid the pair’s big on-screen reunion, the threequel’s director recalls the super funny way Washington would acknowledge his reunion with Fanning while on set.

Equalizer 3 director Antoine Fuqua spilled to People that he orchestrated the decades-long reunion early in the film’s development. Fanning reached out early leading Washington to push for her after finding out she was available. Fuqua mentioned that it was “fun for me to just watch” recalling the duo’s onscreen chemistry. The director then spoke about seeing Fanning’s growth from Man on Fire to The Equalizer 3, recalling a funny story about how Washington reacted to working with her on set all these years later:

Dakota is very competitive and obviously, as a child, her first [acting] experience with Denzel Washington is very powerful, emotional. But you can see how she has grown quite a bit and I think it was more fascinating for Denzel than anyone else. Every once in a while, when I would yell cut, he would just look over and be like, ‘I can’t believe she’s like a grown woman now!’
