Denzel Washington has a ball filming ‘Equalizer’


Oscar winner Denzel Washington filmed a sporty scene for his local movie “The Equalizer” on Monday. He’s been filming at the old Lowe’s in Haverhill (which we assume they’re calling “Home Mart” based on Denzel’s shirt in this picture) and in Charlestown. On Tuesday, he filmed more scenes in Chelsea. We’re still waiting for a sighting of actress Chloe Moretz, of “30 Rock,” “Let Me In,” and “Hugo,” who will star opposite Washington in the film, which is about a retired intelligence officer who helps a prostitute. There’s also a Wahlberg in the film — according to the Internet Movie Database, Robert Wahlberg (Mark and Donnie’s brother) plays a detective in the movie. Robert was also in the local films “Gone Baby Gone,” “The Departed,” and “Mystic River.”
