THE EQUALIZER 2

ANTOINE FUQUA (Director) is one of the most sought-after filmmakers of his generation, effortlessly blending action and character-driven storytelling.

Fuqua's most recent release was The Magnificent Seven, a remake of the 1960 western of the same name and an homage to Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai. With The Magnificent Seven, Fuqua brought his modern and stylish vision to a classic story that starred a diverse and international cast, which included Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.

Previously, Fuqua directed the boxing drama Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal in a heralded performance, and the smash hit The Equalizer, for Sony Pictures. Fuqua's critically acclaimed drama Training Day earned an Academy Award for Denzel Washington for Best Actor, and a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Ethan Hawke. He has also directed such films as Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman; Brooklyn's Finest with Richard Gere; the international hit King Arthur, starring Clive Owen; and the blues documentary Lightning in a Bottle, executive produced by Martin Scorsese.

Through his production company Fuqua Films, Fuqua is busy generating projects and content for both film and television. He is currently executive-producer on the new FOX medical drama "The Resident," starring Matt Czuchry and Emily VanCamp. He is also directing and executive-producing, with Lebron James, an untitled HBO Entertainment multi-part documentary film about the life and career of Muhammad Ali.

Fuqua is also a highly regarded commercial and music video director, having worked with such brands as Nike, Armani and Pirelli, amongst others, and earning numerous awards. He was selected to direct an advertising spot for Walmart's marketing campaign project collectively titled "The Receipt," which aired during the 2017 Oscars telecast. The campaign received the coveted Bronze Lion at the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival.

Fuqua is deeply passionate about supporting youth in the community and gives back through filmmaking. He was honored for his charitable work by The Opportunity Network in 2016.
