Training Day is a movie about a rookie cop who learns the ropes from a deeply corrupt badass. Antoine Fuqua directed it. David Ayer wrote it. Denzel Washington directly competes with God in it. The film is like a nexus point for all kinds of goofy, fun stuff.
Now, it appears Antoine Fuqua and Jerry Bruckheimer are shopping a television version of the film to networks. It sounds like this time the rookie will be black and the corrupt older officer will be white. Other than that, we don’t know much. But you can kind of see how this’ll basically just be another cop show. One guy will struggle with morality, the other will break the law all over the place. There’ll be double-crossings, pregnancies, affairs, all that TV stuff.
According to Deadline, Fuqua is expected to direct the pilot if one is ordered. So at least there’s that to look forward to. I’m way more excited about his upcoming Magnificent Seven remake though.
