EXCLUSIVE: Haley Bennett is continuing with her busy schedule, signing on for a role in Sony‘s redo of The Equalizer. Denzel Washington stars alongside Chloe Moretz and Melissa Leo, and Antoine Fuqua is directing. Bennett, whose earlier credits include The Haunting Of Molly Hartley and Marley & Me, has completed a string of movies in the past year including the untitled Terence Malick film opposite Christian Bale; the psychological thriller Kristy for the Weinstein Company; and Things People Do co-starring Wes Bentley.
Bennett, repped by CAA and The Schiff Co, next shoots indie drama The White City, which will be co-directed by writer Tanner King Barklow (from the Oscar-nommed The Invisible War) and Gil Kofman. Thomas Dekker and Bob Morley also star in the story of an emotionally charged love triangle between three young artists that develops against the hot political climate of modern Tel Aviv.
