Recently, there’s been a horror movie-to-television resurgence, and now it seems more popular movies will be made into television shows. This one in particular is Antoine Fuqa’s Training Day. Interestingly, he’s involved in this TV project. Antoine Fuqua will direct the follow-up to his 2001 feature film of the same name.
Based on the feature film from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures, the potential series will take place 15 years after the movie. So pretty much in today’s world. The planned Training Day series is set in the LAPD of 2015. Antoine Fuqua will direct the pilot, which was written by feature writer and former LAPD detective Will Beall, that’s interesting. Jerry Bruckheimer Television’s Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman will executive produce alongside Fuqua and Beall.
Training Day is just one of the many, many future projects based on movies coming to television. Expect this to be the growing trend, along with superhero movies/TV shows. Already in the works are TV series based on Rush Hour (CBS), Limitless (CBS), Uncle Buck (ABC) and Minority Report (Fox). Meanwhile, The CW is prepping series based on The Notebook and Friday the 13th this season.
