In what has to be one of the biggest examples of downgrading ever, the Antoine Fuqua film Infinite is set to replace Chris Evans with Mark Wahlberg. Evans just recently dropped out of the acton thriller, and Wahlberg is now in talks to take over his role in the film about near-immortal men and women reincarnated over the centuries. So I guess this is kind of like Highlander, with Mark Wahlberg. Yay?

Chris Evans is leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Endgame, which means he’s going to have some free time. Rather than take a long vacation, the actor is already looking for new projects – one of which is the sci-fi film Infinite, based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers. As is the case with most big movies these days, there’s franchise potential here, which means Evans might be jumping from one franchise to another. If so, he’ll be working with Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua. Read More »
If you thought there were already too many streaming services to choose from, prepare yourselves for a new contender to enter the fray. Former Walt Disney Studios chairman and DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg and CEO Meg Whitman have announced that their short-form content mobile subscription platform has an official name: Quibi, which is short for “quick bites.” As in, quick bites of content that are only 10-15 minutes long.
No, this is not a joke.
In addition to unveiling the platform’s name, the company’s founders revealed a handful of major Hollywood players who are on board to develop shows for the new service, including Jason Blum, Guillermo del Toro, Antoine Fuqua, and the previously-announced Sam Raimi. After you catch your breath from laughing so hard at the dorkiest name in streaming – Seriously? “Quibi?” – keep reading to learn more about each of their new shows. Read More »
The future slate of Marvel Studios is mostly unclear. Right now, the only projects officially on the calendar are Captain Marvel in March of 2019, Avengers 4 a couple months later in May, and Spider-Man: Far From Home a couple months after that in July.

If we’re lucky, Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington will make Equalizer movies until the end of days. In a sea of +100 million dollar franchises, Fuqua and Washington are making a series unlike any other in major theaters right now. No franchise star today is as hard-hitting, violent, and as well-spoken as Robert McCall (Denzel Washington), whose eloquent threats and promises of vengeance are as crowd-pleasing as his fighting skills.
But don’t call this Equalizer series a franchise or blockbuster to Fuqua, because he’s more interested in telling a good standalone story than making a sequel that’s really just a bit more of the same. Like Washington, Fuqua had opportunities to make prequels and sequels, for both Training Day and Olympus Has Fallen, but they never made sense to him. The world of Robert McCall, on the other hand, was rich enough for the filmmaker to continue to McCall’s journey.
Recently, we had the opportunity to sit down with the always passionate Fuqua to discuss The Equalizer 2, working with Denzel Washington for the fourth time, Miami Vice, and even his fond memory of working with Prince.
