25 Aug - Antoine Fuqua would still like to cast Denzel Washington as Robert McCall if he is to direct an origin story of "The Equalizer".
How to do that when Washington gets older and older, you ask? Through AI, of course.
In an interview with NME recently, Fuqua stated that he has been considering using AI technology to de-age the actor if he is to do such a project in the future.
However, the director stated that he hasn't run the idea by the actor yet.
"It's all so fresh and new. I'm still watching [the technology]. I've watched ["Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny"] and I know there's other movies coming out... And I'm hearing the technology is getting better and better and better. So I'm kind of watching it to see where it goes," he said.
As for the origin story, Fuqua said that he has had the conversation with screenwriter Richard Wenk, and that he is interested in the idea of creating a story of how McCall became the person that he is.
