Antoine Fuqua has worked with Denzel Washington four times, more than any other director. And on this week's episode, he talks to Chris Hewitt about reteaming with the Oscar-winning legend for The Equalizer 2, their first outing on Training Day, and his hopes that Denzel might star in his Scarface remake. Elsewhere, the frank and very funny Fuqua talks about bouncing back in Hollywood after King Arthur, and about the social conscience that runs through his films as an African-American director. That starts at 00:39:54 and runs to 01:12:22.
Then, Chris is joined in the regular-regular podbooth by James Dyer and Nick de Semlyen for a frankly chaotic podcast that sees them review The Equalizer 2 and Christopher Robin, tackle a listener's question about ageing action heroes (with the emphasis heavily on tackle), and discuss the week's movie news. Oh, and crowbar in more terrible impressions per second than any previous Empire Podcast. Enjoy...?
