Warner Bros Is Developing Training Day Prequel Set In the 90s
Training Day was an incredible 2001 crime thriller that was so good that it gave star Denzel Washington an Oscar for Best Actor.
It followed two LAPD narcotics officers over a 12-hour period in the gang-ridden neighbourhoods of South Central Los Angeles. The film was a confronting look at gang life and the lengths both sides will go in order to sell or stop drugs from seeping into the community.
But it seems like the story isn't fully told, according to movie studio Warner Bros.
Collider reports the studio is keen on making a prequel movie set in the 1992 'two days before the Rodney King verdict was delivered'.
That was a decision that sparked the LA riots, with many taking to the streets because they were furious that four police officers walked free after being accused of using excessive force in the arrest and beating of Mr King.
According to Collider, Warner Bros has asked Nick Yarborough to write the prequel, which would 'follow a younger version of Alonzo Harris' (Denzel Washington's character).
The site tipped that Denzel's son, John, who is also an actor, could be perfect for the role considering he is around the age that Alonzo would have been in the early 90s.
It's all reports at the moment so don't get too excited if you're a massive Training Day fan, but in this age of reboots and prequels, don't be surprised if/when it gets confirmed.
