King Kong ain’t got nothing on this news report as Collider.com is bring the word that Warner Bros. is looking as a planned prequel to Antoine Fuqua’s cop thriller Training Day which of course starred Academy Award winner Denzel Washington who played one crooked detective who was tasked with showing a younger Ethan Hawke the ropes of a blurred line between right and wrong.
According to the site, “the prequel will be set nearly a decade earlier in late April of 1992 — two days before the Rodney King verdict was delivered. Los Angeles was already a powder keg just waiting to explode that week, and the verdict led to the L.A. riots.” The site goes on to say that the film will “follow a younger version of Alonzo Harris.”
The original landed Washington an Oscar and Hawke was even nominated for best supporting actor as well. Suicide Squad’s David Ayer penned the script which went on to gross over $100 million at the worldwide box office.
Warner Bros. has tapped Black List writer Nick Yarborough to write the prequel. The film is in the very early stages of development and there is no confirmation of stars or director at this point or if Fuqua, Ayer or original producer Jeffrey Silver would be willing to return.
A TV Series was brought to life last year but star Bill Paxton passed away which negated any chance of the series returning.
