    Denzel Washington has been spotted in Boston’s South End filming a new movie.

    The Boston Globe reports Washington is filiming "Equalizer 2," the sequel to "The Equalizer," which was shot in other parts of Massachusetts, including Chelsea and Haverhill. 

    The first film, which also starred Washington, was released in 2014 to commercial success. The sequel is slated to be released August 2018. 

    Several Bostonians spotted the film in production earlier this month and tweeted their excitement about seeing the star in the city.

    Several other movie productions have been filming in the city in recent months.

    "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams was spotted frequently in the North End in July while filming "New Mutants," the latest installment in the "X-Men" series.

    And the Globe reports that Amy Schumer was seen filming "I Feel Pretty" in Boston in August.
