  • There’s apparently a cocaine problem on the set of a new Denzel Washington movie … two caterers working on set were arrested after cops in Italy say they seized a bunch of coke following a man’s death.
  • Italian paramilitary police say they seized 120 grams of cocaine during a Tuesday afternoon raid at a hotel on the Amalfi coast, near where Denzel and Dakota Fanning are filming “The Equalizer 3.”
  • Cops say the drug bust was in response to the sudden death of the movie production’s head of catering, a 55-year-old man who reportedly collapsed leaving a bar and died of a heart attack.
  • Police say they found several bags of cocaine in the man’s pockets, leading to suspicion of more drugs on the ‘Equalizer’ set.
