A decade and a half after its theatrical release, Antoine Fuqua is bringing Training Day to television. Deadline is reporting that Fuqua approached WBTV with the new series concept which will take place in the LAPD during present day. Since the initial pitch, Jerry Bruckheimer has been brought on to produce the project which was written by current screenwriter — and former police detective — Will Beall (The Legend Of Conan, Castle).
The Big Four networks seem to be interested in the potential project as they are currently taking the series pitch. If ordered, Fuqua is most likely going to direct the pilot. Aside from the updated time period for the series, the premise here may get a new twist with the rookie cop being African American and the older cop being white.
